Just 3 weeks ago, my result came out. I was over my grandmothers house for a feast. Everyone was there, my babajaan's (dad) relatives and his cousins. I checked my result online and it was 80%+. That meant it was A+. I was so happy, literally dancing everywhere. Everyone congratulated me. I got hugs, wishes, cheer ups, I was queen of the moment. But I've had an idea that there's something in my mind that's annoying me, I went home and checked my examination card to see if the result is REALLY 80%+. And then it came up that it wasn't my own result. Yeah I didn't get 80%+. I got 75%. I had put the wrong roll no and my result was just 75%. I was stoned. I couldn't go back and face everyone. It was so scary. I told Noor to go back to grandmother's house without me because I am not going to face them, at least right now. I need some space to accept what have I said VS what I really got. I was thinking that my family folks are going to laugh out loud about that. GAAHH! It was upsetting and embarrassing. Maybe not everyone reading this would feel how horrible this was, but it was horrible. All I was thinking that I shouldn't have told everyone about it, getting more than 80% is a big deal! But Noor told me to GO & FACE! Well this GO & FACE sounds pretty motivating!
So yes, I went back. Met my grandfather downstairs and I told him that what have I done. When he heard my tale, he was laughing. I was thinking that it's not right time to laugh at me, he should be giving advice to me. He said that 75% is still a good grade, I got an A and I should be grateful that I am not failed. *He had the point.
So in short, I went upstairs (I took him with me, you never know when you need your grandparents around) I told everyone what was my actual result. I was expecting everyone to laugh or pity but hey! They didn't say anything like that. All of them cheered me up that getting an A is a great thing. My aunt told me that she got 62% and still didn't care about that. This taught me a lesson: Getting alone and leaving everything when you're upset in NOT the answer. Thinking bad things and making things worse is NOT the answer.
The answer is: Don't be upset anymore.
Do the things that you love or the things that make you feel better. I paint and draw when I need to get over somethings. Or eat things you like. After that evening at grandmother's house, I ate a lot and slept on the couch while talking to my folks. Yes on the couch, in the middle of living room, with people around.
I spray my favorite body spray all over when I am upset, it works! Good scents help you feel better about the disasters you make. Or I read a joke, or a good book, or check out my favorite Youtuber or or or STALK YOUR FAVORITE
I won't say talk to someone. Because that's not my own option. I have a bad habit of stop talking to people when I am upset. I know it's not good.But bad habits are hard to leave. But if you're good at sharing problems, talk to someone too. Or call a funny friend, because funny people best people!
Tell me how you get away from upset situations? Or does pizza and lemonade help you to be less upset?
