“It’s not what you say out of your mouth that determines your life. It’s what you whisper to yourself that has the most power.”
If you’ve ever caught yourself saying mean things to yourself, calling yourself lazy, stupid, or a failure, then you know what it’s like to have an inner critic. We can be incredibly judgmental of ourselves, and we often say things to ourselves that we would never say to a friend.

For most high school juniors, the year leading up to application deadlines is extremely stressful. On top of keeping up with classes, studying for entrance exams, and visiting colleges, students have the agonizing task of creating “the list” of schools to which they want to apply. For students, this time period can cause an enormous amount of fear, uncertainty, and self-doubt. As parents, we know it can be stressful, but we don’t always know how bad it can be.
What’s your major? It’s one of the most popular questions asked at undergraduate events. All too often, freshmen feel that the answer somehow defines them. Why, I’m pre-med! Or pre-law! Or a business major, economics major, poli sci, music theory, or any of hundreds of possibilities.
Choosing an undergraduate major is important. However, it should be a choice that serves you, not one that limits you. The phrase “nothing is carved in stone” definitely applies here. You should not walk around campus feeling as if someone has stamped your forehead “Sheila Student, psychology major, now and forever.”
