I am majoring in computer engineering and I am absolutely terrified of failure. I have always had a weak background in math and if I could go past in time I would just so I could study more. I did not have the resources nor the encouragement to excel at academics but now I am in university. Honestly, I feel like I have nobody to blame but myself as until recently, I have not had true motivation to study mathematics. At this point I am struggling in my pre-calculus and trigonometry classes. While I feel like I can brute-force/study the methods of solving questions, I feel like I do not understand mathematics at its core. I am struggling in what feels like rudimentary classes; and although I do fall into the party that believes that almost anybody can be good at math, I’m really afraid that I will fail at attaining an actually comprehensive understanding of mathematics. I am terrified for the future and I am terrified at the thought of failure in college/my field. I am terrified that I will not be able to commit enough time to learn mathematics in its true and intended form (due to work). I don’t know what to do. Is there anything I can do to make sure that I succeed?
