“Someday, someone you love will die, and everything else will seem totally irrelevant.”
The day I was told that my father passed away, everything did seem to fade away. Yes, my other troubles were there, but they were there at a distance. I think this has helped me realize that I shouldn’t worry as much as I do about academics and other things. To take a step back and evaluate my worries can be hard for me to do. But after this event, I think (hopefully) that it’ll be easier for me to relax on some certain aspects of my life.
