I would tell her first of all that I love her. She is just fine as she is. Relax. It is ok to make mistakes. You can learn and leverage them for more good the next time.

You will not only survive from what you think is the worst disaster ever, but you will actually do better and be happier than you can imagine now. Laugh. Life is to be lived with joy, wonder and humor. Bad things are going to happen. They are easier to deal with when we take them and ourselves less seriously.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
