i'm failing


so, my supervisor has no confidence in my research design and was not pleased at all with my last research statement. It does not make sense apparently. I am progressing into my penultimate year and I have lost all hope.
I feel like such a loser. Such a wasteman. Such an idiot.

I'm sorry you feel so. But trust me that's what most PhD student feel time to time. We usually underestimate the value of our work. Don't give up. Talk to someone who can remind you of your strength and positive steps you took during your PhD.


Has he given you any specific feedback you can work on? Do you think he is being fair? is there anyone else that can look at it for you?
