Alright, to anyone following me about to take the bar exam: I failed and my life did not end. I have a job making what many of my colleagues who passed also make. I have so many projects and ideas that give me joy. Your life will not end if you fail the bar exam.
I'm not going to lie, it's gonna suck. BUT there is so, so much more than this test. You can still do great things. You can do things related to what you want to do if you pass. You are just starting out and the bar is just a tool to direct you to what you will do right now.
The biggest lie and the darkest cloud over this test is that your life will be over if you fail.

That's so far from the truth. And I wish someone had told me that.
Look at even the past year, the landscape of so many careers is changing so rapidly. Boxing yourself in and defining yourself by two days of testing where you are plagued by anxiety and stress AND AN ACTUAL PLAGUE is a huge disservice to your hard work and your skill.
You are so capable and so worthy. Do not go into this exam with the fear of failure. Go in knowing that no matter the outcome you have so many incredible options. You're going to be alright. I promise. And if you fail, you know where to find me.
