What to do when things seem to be falling apart??

Postby tanes25 » Fri Sep 08, 2017 6:52 am

Hello, does anyone ever feel like everything is starting to crumble? Recently everything has seemed to fall apart for me. RC is still cool but the other two sections are shot! I performed best on LG but not recently. I've stopped PT and actually took a break to make sure it wasn't burnout but I'm still struggling. I came back and scored really bad on an LG section. I went -2 on LG last night but I'm not getting excited just yet. I was afraid to touch RC but it seems to be fine. I'm still afraid to touch LR because idk if I can take it if I fail miserably. I also feel like I'm burning PT. Of course, I can go in super hard and kill BR but I still think it's a waste of PT. Anybody have any words of advice? TIA

I wish I did, man. Sounds like you're struggling with mental games. Life throws things at you that just require states of mind to overcome. It's just impossible to help people directly find an appropriate state. Sometimes in life we are alone in our struggle to overcome, not out of malice but rather necessity. Success comes to those who don't give up.

Have you considered postponing the LSAT to give yourself more time to get creative with these challenges?

This happened to me last week. I got a score on a PT that I haven't gotten since March. It ruined my week and seriously made me doubt whether the LSAT or even law school was the right choice for me. I took a day off, got my mind right and went back at it. Now I'm back to normal, scored 175 yesterday, ready for next week.

Sometimes all it takes is digging deep, but if you honestly, truly feel like postponing is the best choice then it's the best choice. Just make sure you did it not out of impulse but out of necessity.

This is beautiful. 100% agree
