All right, so I finally figured out what I need to change about myself. You see, I somehow got it through my head that a person's worth is measured by their intelligence, and if someone/I gets a question wrong, fails a test, and/or a plethora of other things, it means the person is worthless and idiotic, and would be better off dead. No wonder half of my day is spent by crying. So, all I have to do is tell Mom, and we can work it out. Sounds good, huh? Well, I can't. She's a religious Catholic, and, because of a rather long and depressing story I won't tell, I'm agnostic atheist. I haven't told her, and don't plan to for a while. So, when I tell her that I used to think a person's intelligence is all that matters, she'll catch on to the fact I'm not religious. And then... I don't even want to think of what would happen. So, what do I do to overcome the issue of thinking that a person's worth is dependent on their intelligence without telling my mother?
