An Open Letter To The Struggling College Student

Hey guys! Welcome back. College is a struggle and if you are in college right now and you are struggling, just know that you aren’t alone. There are so many (more than not) who are struggling through the day, through the semester, and even through the year. We are most likely all struggling in at least one way. So this is for you. If you are struggling and need some encouragement, this one is for you. Whether you are a first year freshman or a second year senior, college is tough. Those tough times don’t discriminate. They catch up to us all at some point.

At times it feels like we have no one to go to when we start struggling. We start doubting ourselves and our capabilities. But it is important to surround yourself with people who lift you up and remind you of your greatness. It’s important to have a support group that reminds you they are there when you feel all alone or that your struggles will be burdens. It is necessary to reach out so you aren’t trying to carry around the weight all on your own.

I know sometimes it is hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but I promise it’s there. You just have to keep pushing through in order to get to the light. College is often advertised to us as being the best time of our lives, and maybe in some ways that is true. But in many ways it is one of the most difficult and trying times of our lives. There is so much stress, work, events, people, and other things that require our attention. We have so many things going on that we need multiple things to remind us and keep us on track.

I just hope you know that you are not alone. It’s a struggle for sure and there will be times when you just want to give up. But don’t. Keep going. Because all of your hard work, stress, late nights, worrying, and anxiety will pay off in the end. It’s hard to see it now because you are up to your ears in assignments, exams, papers, work, your social life, and basic human necessities. But I promise we will all get there.

We often see our truest strength when faced with tough obstacles. There are several of those throughout college. But the more you get through, the stronger you will become. You will become a smarter and well-rounded person if you stick it out and show the world what you are made of and what you are capable of. Because we are all destined for greatness if we are willing to put in the time and effort.

I hope this brings you at least a little bit of peace. The semester is getting crazy and we are beginning to struggle. But this is not the end. It will pay off if we give it a chance. So keep pushing through and don’t forget to take care of yourself. Self care is crucial during times like this. Don’t neglect your well-being.
