The Best Ad­vice I Ever Got

Reader's Digest - - Letters -

As a stressed-out col­lege fresh­man, I was hav­ing trou­ble with the work, so I went to my pro­fes­sor’s of­fice. He had a rough rep­u­ta­tion, but I needed help. As he was try­ing to ex­plain the graphs, I mut­tered that I was stupid for not get­ting it, to which he gen­tly replied, “Don’t say that. You’re not stupid. You’re just new at this.” I think about that line all the time, and he be­came one of my fa­vorite pro­fes­sors. RE­BECCA PFEFFER, Al­len­town, Penn­syl­va­nia I would like to see a fol­low-up ar­ti­cle en­ti­tled “The Worst Ad­vice I Ever Got.” Think: “I know the road looks flooded, but you can make it!” or “Get mar­ried even if you are hav­ing sec­ond thoughts; it’s too late to call off the wed­ding!” DENISE DEN­TON THIERY, Alexan­dria, Ken­tucky
