Friends and family don't get it...
In the process of preparing for the upcoming exam, it has been necessary for many months now to withdraw a great deal from family and friends. Bless their hearts for being my family and friends, but they will almost always underestimate the sheer difficulty (and sacrifice) involved. Their attitude is generally, “Ah…you’re worrying too much.” I just want to smack them six ways from Sunday whenever they give me that attitude. I take some offense as to how how little they respect the caliber of the examination. Anyone else going through this?
