  • Focus On Long Term Goal & Gain Control

It’s important to think about the long-term goal. The situation which you are in right now is temporary. Believe me, once you get control over your emotions and get focused on your goal, clearing this exam which is part of building your future is far more important for you. Perhaps you thought that you and your partner would be together indefinitely. Who knows, maybe you will? However, nothing involving another person can ever be certain- because you cannot control the actions or emotions of someone else. The only thing that you do have control over is your response to the situation. Think about the reasons that you are studying in the first place and picture the lifestyle that you would want in the future.
