Self-Care in College, Negative Self-Talk, and College Relationships with Daniella Evangelista - Ep 25
Daniella's first quarter at UC Davis was "one of the most mentally and emotionally challenging" times in her life. She struggled with a lot. Homesickness, serious test anxiety, being able to balance and prioritize her mental health with her collegiate studies, to name a few. Negative self-talk that told her "I don't deserve to be here. I'm not smart enough. I'm not good enough. All these people are better than me" were at the forefront of her mind. She felt that she was the only person struggling, the only person who didn't understand, for example, what was going on in a lecture. She had to deal with her high expectations of herself being disappointed.
But as Daniella started to shift her attitude and mindset towards college, started to talk to the people around her, started to prioritize self-care, started to be kind to herself - she became equipped with tools that are helping her move forward. In this episode, she shares her journey with us, as well as the lessons she's learned along the way.
We are also joined partway through the episode by her boyfriend of 2.5 years, Alan Duong, to talk about the long-distance relationships, although their experience and advice are solid for any relationship in general. If you're in college or going to be, Daniella gives practical and real advice to the lifestyle and mindset that will help you succeed, but even beyond that, you will find that many of the struggles Daniella went through and the tips she suggests apply in all stages and ages of our lives. I hope you enjoy the episode! ~
