Motivation for Studying Physics

Motivation for Studying Physics Let’s study Physics guys. Physics is FUN and IMPORTANT !!

Hello all, new poster here. I dont want to sound like I’m ranting but I feel like I have no one else to tell. Studying physics has been my life dream since about a year and a half ago. After a long and hard journey (college would not let me take further maths),

I finally made it into a prestigious university, studying theoretical physics. To make a long story short, at college I was not the brightest student due to lack of studying in my previous lifestyle. I had to work hard to eventually get to a position where I found maths and physics a-level pretty easy.

(I’m aware that most people work hard, what I want to point out is that it didn’t come naturally to me) At my university, many, if not all, of the students are much faster than me, and I cannot answer many of the problems set, whereas they can.

Something which bothers me (also at bothered me at college although it never really surfaced until now) is that I cannot creatively think of a solution to a problem. I feel like I am too rigid and stick too literally to the content we have learnt. I’ve started to feel really depressed because I am so far behind everyone, I can never contribute to the lessons.

All of this has perhaps made me lost my motivation to study physics, something I did not want to admit. Before I started university, I felt I was connected with physics and it became more than just a subject I wanted to study. I know I definitely want to study physics, but I’m having troubling rekindling my love. I’ve thrown out so many problems here, and I’m not expecting a solve-all solution but any helpful advice is greatly appreciated. I am sorry for moaning so much but its gotten to the point where I am starting to slowly become depressed. I just want to love doing physics again!
