Algebra! Algebra! Algebra! What is the first impression when you hear the word algebra. You would probably look something like this.

Well, don’t worry you are not the only one here and that’s exactly what I look like when it class for algebra. Just these crazy number and letters with square root, to the power of some others number and keep asking you to find X when you littery see it’s right there, just give me an ache. However, that’s not all it is about algebra; at least that is what I thought. Even though I don’t like algebra and still don’t understand much about it. I’ll be here today and just tell you a little bit about my experience throughout the course of learning basic algebra and how has it changed my perspective on Math.

You see I’m just one of those people who’s doesn’t like math that much but doing pretty well on it. Having almost no issues solving problems, understanding new topic quickly and have a really decent score on tests. Yet all of those change when algebra comes in. There are just these strange feelings of learning algebra that make it seem certainly difficult for me and has decreased all of my confidants. I know that math is all of the patients, learn from your mistakes and resolve the problems again and again until you get it right. Anyhow the methods just don’t work with algebra at all, because no matter how many time I tried it’s just still doesn’t work.

And that’s when I decide to just leave some of the other unnecessary things beside leaning behind, and take it’s easy on Math. Surprisingly it works after a few days. I started to gets a little basic about what is an X and some simple equation about it. So after a few weeks past by, I started to gets my confidence back. It’s doesn’t matter if I’m still bad at algebra, but I’m sure I’ll get over the problems over one day if I keep being in this good spot of where I am now.

Here’s the one lesson I wanted you to know. Yes! you reading this behind the screen right now. Sometimes when you feel like you are stuck in a place and can’t find any solutions at all to get out. It is probably the time for you to just leave something behind, take a deep breath, and take everything very very calm and easy. This isn’t just about Math, it’s about friendship, money, learning, and everything as a whole. Because I was pretty sure that inside you there is always a little candle waiting to ignite. Thank you so very much and Have a nice day! 🙂
