I would have tried harder in school. I am a case study on why you're not supposed to tell your kids they are smart. Being "smart" was so tied up with my identity that I was terrified if I studied and still didn't do well, then my world would come crashing down around me. Better to not study and get a B- then to study your heart out and only get a B+. I went to a good but not great school and it makes me sad to think about where I could have ended up if I had put any effort in. On the flip side, DH was Mr. Perfect rule follower, graduated magna cum laude from HYP, went to a top 5 business school, got a job at a top I Bank. Our HHI is about 60% him, 40% from me, and I am much happier than him, with a much better day to day life. So I guess all is well that ends well. [ Reply | More ]
