I'm struggling in my intro physics classe because I cannot bring myself to participate in class discussions or seek help from others when I'm confused. I was afraid of looking stupid by saying something wrong in class and looking incompetent by asking for help. This "strategy" has blown up in my face; I'm hoping I'll pull a C in physics I this semester. Clearly I have too much of an ego need to bring myself back down to earth. I know what I need to change to be successful in physics, but may I ask for advice on how to ask for help when needed? Thanks.
