## Main Question or Discussion Point

It has been a month now since I chose to study mathematics in college. In fact I want to do research in general relativity/cosmology so I think having a math degree first would be advantageous.

So I started with real analysis. I'm trying to understand the subject by myself. I read Rudin, covered the first 2 chapters and now I'm trying to do the proofs of all the theorems without looking at the book. I've asked several questions to you so far, and it looks like you all born with talent and knowledge... I'm not sure if I made any progress so far, could you tell me about your experience, how did you start and was the subject hard for you too or it's just me? It's hard to imagine all the steps while writing a proof...
