Im feeling like i can't do this anymore

I started to learn fcc in aug of 2021. at first, I was learning fcc curriculum very interestingly and more motivated … IDK why I feel so down right now. btw I have enormous family pressure to make some money and I’m having some anxiety about whether I can succeed in my life and having some negative thoughts… How to get over this hardship … usually I don’t ask anyone … but I have to :pleading_face:


Hi @arsxd81 !

First and foremost, if you are having negative thoughts and struggling with mental health then please consult with a trained counselor.
Your mental health and well being should come first before anything else. :grinning:

Secondly, a lot of people go through this.
The newness of coding has worn off.
The concepts and lessons are getting harder.
Plus you have the added stress of finances.

I don’t know if you are working now, but I would suggest getting a regular day job to bring in stable income.
It doesn’t have to be your dream job.
It is just temporary until you can land a dev job.

There have been plenty of people who worked day jobs and coding in the mornings and evenings.
One of those people was Danny Thompson.

You also have to remember that you are still pretty early on in the journey.
It has been about 3 months.
Just try to do your best and take things one day at a time.

Keep learning and building. :grinning:

Hope that helps!


thank you for your advice … that means a lot to me

hello @arsxd81! ,
first of all its ok to ask help,

about this just don’t think too much , because i was same as you buddy. you know i am 19 years old right now and when i was 18 i use to think lot like , what i will do in future and how i get my job as soon as possible and for that i give government exams too, you know on hsc base to get job and i got selected too i pass costguard exam ,all physical test too but finally got rejected in medical because i have color blindness so things get happen .
you know sadness and all but then i talk to my mom and dad and they said buddy you are just 18 years old kid just don’t think too much about your life ok , just do what you want to do and we are always with you .

so i will suggest you to talk to your parent and share your problems with them definetley you will find out the way.

and about code if your facing problem understanding textual content then try videos that help a lot because i have learned from videos more than textual content.

thanks !

I’m not good when it comes to my parents … me and my parents always had a rocky relationship since I was 8 yr old to till now … I’m more of a “me” solving or asking friends/fcc forum but i’ll try my best to speak to them

Thanks for the advice mate :grinning:
