Self-sufficiency is a crucial quality that all humans should have but the majority lack. Nowadays people are dependant on others to accomplish tasks and this dependency partially sets them up for failure because outside help will not be available at all times. My friends and family would describe me as a self-sufficient person.
I would be described as a self-sufficient person because I rarely accept help from outside and much rather accomplish tasks on my own before asking for help. Shortly after graduation, I was burdened with the regret of not taking Calculus 12. I knew I would be going to university soon and would have to take first year Calculus. I tried applying for summer school Calculus 12 but classes were full. I accepted that I would be going into university without any preparation for math, unlike my friends. At first I found the class quite difficult because concepts like limits and continuity were new to me, while my other friends relaxed for the first couple weeks. I found myself studying twice or three times the amount they studied but this turned out to be beneficial because I developed good study habits.
Ultimately, I ended up getting an A+ in the course which is the highest grade possible and did even better then my friends that took Calculus 12 in high school. This grade was the result of myself being independent and trying to accomplish the task on my own before asking for help.any suggestions, idk if this is even on topic or not been such a long time since I wrote anything, help me out please and thanks.
