This is so right but so wrong! It would make a great Christmas gift. You could even get creative and make some Christmas slime.
How often do you hear yourself saying things like, I'm so stupid, I'll never get good grades, I'm not good at anything, nobody likes me? These kind of thoughts can affect your behaviour and become self-fulfilling prophecies. With a bit of time and effort you can change your thinking.
Think about your self-talk and write down negative things you say to yourself.
For example, I'm not good at anything.
Judge your thoughts to see if there is any evidence that this is true.
For example, I can cook the best chocolate chip cookies. I get good grades in Math, I am great at Sodoku puzzles. You are good at three things (most likely more) so the statement, I'm not good at anything, is not true.
Replace the negative thought with a more positive one.
Next time you're tempted to say, I'm not good at anything, say something like I'm not great at spelling but I'm getting better.
All the best!
Remember when you were in primary school and there was that one kid that kept copying you so you would put your arm over your work or build a fort of books so they couldn't see? Every time you sat a test the teacher would say, "keep your eyes on your own work." It's important to do your own work in school, but it's also important to do your own thing in life too. Don't copy how other people speak, dress or act to fit in - just be you. Don't be awkward or embarrassed about your love of folk music or your passion for photography, or your weakness for gherkins - just own it.
I know it's still a month till Christmas but if you want to make an Advent Calendar you're running out of time. Here are some great ideas!
