I’m pretty aware that school is about to come to an end real soon. (Or at least where I’m at anyway.) My freshman year in college is ending. *cry me a river* A lot of things is running in my head. So many emotions. Countless thoughts. Anyway if you’re in your senior year in high school, you sure have a lot on your plate, I suppose. Don’t you worry, guys! I’ve got your back. I’d been in your shoes, so I think I know what I’m saying here.
Let’s contemplate about life back in high school!
Different people have different stories and experiences. Some say, “It’s rough.” Some say, “It’s the best few years of their life.” Some even forgot half of the journey. Let’s be honest, though. Even if you try to argue that you’re quite a grown-up, you’re not. You’re pretty young. You might not know what you’re doing. You’re in your teenage year where you’re going through various phases. Moodswing. Rebel. Drama. Heartbreak. More drama. 90% of the time, you don’t know what you’re doing. You think you do, but you actually don’t. Trust me, I used to be like that, too. Looking back now, I was stupid. If you’re having a tough time right now, you’ll get through it. The real journey hasn’t begun, yet. The real obstacles are not the one in high. Focus on your study so you can get into a good university.
“Talking about undergraduate, have you thought about what do you want to take in college? What do you want to do after you graduated? Any college you’re interested in? Local? Overseas?” Hahaha! Seniors, you’ve heard these questions too many time, haven’t you? 😀 Take your time, boys and girls. Don’t rush, but also give it a good consideration. If you feel overwhelmed, talk to somebody. Your family, specifically. I know parents can be strict and annoying at this time because they want to know what your plan is. However nagging they are, they will give you good suggestions and advice. Although, siblings may be better. They are around your age. Therefore, they may understand a bit more. I recommend you looking into multiple things even the one you dislike and never think of trying. Give all of them a chance and see how you feel about it. Don’t stress about it too much. Just set aside some time to think about it. Concentrate more on graduating first. Some of you, on the other hand, does not intend to enter college. It’s okay as well. You do you. Whatever you might take on, remember to have a backup plan always. Getting a degree is one thing.
Life isn’t all about academic.
The harsh reality about high school and after is that you’ll lose some people. A lot, even. Best friends. Lover. Those amazing groups you think will be with you forever and ever. Unfortunately, they were just passing by. It’s not even about high school. That just how life is. People come and go. Don’t get attached to anyone. It’s unhealthy. Don’t expect everyone to have the same heart as you. If you actually found your own circle, I’m happy for you. You are one lucky individual as not everybody is that blessed. Keep them close and treasure them. If you’ve been betrayed, chin up my dear. It’s their loss. I know how you feel. Been there many times. It’s painful, but it’s not the end of the world. You’ll go through this kind of thing in life at one point in order to learn and grow. Focus on the lessons and you’ll flourish, not the pain. Forgive them and yourself and move on. Life doesn’t end there. Have faith in God that he’s leading you to your destination in this lifetime. He has a wonderful plan for you ahead. You’ll find your people who are meant to stay with you through the good and the bad. High school is only a tiny chapter. There are much more you have yet to experience. Pray to have the strength to endure all the things life throw at you because far ahead is going to be extremely handful.
I’m not an expert. I can only share what I learn each day. One important lesson I came to term with lately is…
“Take every day as it comes. Focus on the present. Let go of the past. Do not stress too much about the future. Enjoy the moment while it lasts and regrets nothing. Life is short.”
When you feel it is devastating, breath. I’m here for you. You’re not alone. Hold on a little longer, you’re gorgeous. ❤
The one who cares
Have a lovely day always! xxx
