I’m not as talented as I thought I was

She is 14 years old, and is considered by everyone to be obedient, skillful and good at studying.

In the past, I always got high scores on tests, at the end of the school year, I was in the top three of my class. When I got to a higher grade, I started to find that the problems were getting more and more difficult, not as easy to solve as before, sometimes I didn’t even understand the teacher’s lesson, I had to go back and read the book again to understand. That’s when I realized that I wasn’t as good as I thought, while my classmates all thought I was very good.

Recently there was an exam, I did not get the high score as expected. I was very worried, because I knew that in the future I would not get the same high results as before, afraid of being told by my friends or teachers: “I thought it was good, it turned out…”. Sometimes I just wish that my grades weren’t as high before so I wouldn’t have to work so hard to get good grades. I very much desire to have the optimistic, worry-free life of those who only achieve average results. In short, I am very afraid of judgment, and then I think that even if I am successful and rich tomorrow, I will eventually return to dust. Don’t the rich or the poor all have the same end in the end?

Parents, friends or teachers are all very good people, they never force me to study too much, always praise me for being good, so I feel the pressure now. Please give me some advice.
