I know a lot of ppl have already asked this question, but I had to ask again b/c I feel like some things in my mind haven't been cleared up yet. I'm currently a freshman in a university and taking introductory physics classes. Since taking physics in college, I have been doubting myself very frequently if physics is the right major for me (or if I even like physics...!) In high school, I became immensely interested in particle physics and since then decided to pursue a physics major. However, my current situation is that I find solving problems really hard, and the more imminent matter is that I don't enjoy doing them (although I understand its importance). I am not struggling with math, but I am struggling with problem solving (esp. setting up equations), although the concepts I'm learning right now have been already covered in high school and so should be more comfortable. Some say I just need more practice, and I am trying by doing extra problems and redoing many times, and I'm willing to put more effort if you tell me what I can do additionally. However, what I'm worried here is that if I don't "enjoy" solving basic mechanics problem, majoring in physics will later become overwhelming and overly stressful. I've read some comments that ppl like me do not really end up majoring in physics since they do not like the "journey," but I'm confused here. What is exactly the journey?!... Is this just a mere complaint of a freshman who is not satisfied with his/her performance or should I seriously give a thought for changing a major? When I read books on physics and what researchers are doing, I get really passionate, and I just cannot stop thinking myself not doing physics. But whether or not I pursue physics, I have great respect for physicists and what physics has achieved, anyways :) Thank you for reading, and I would appreciate your honest opinions!
