High school is a wild jungle when you think about it. We as students are very intelligent people with extraordinary personalities; we overcome what we as kids think can be impossible to deal with, and we always find another way to make it out in good shape.
Yes, I am sure that we can all agree that we have had our rough patches throughout our years here, but we have some pretty powerful influences who can help our perspectives change. Sometime people give us quotes that we could live our lives by, empowering speeches that make us believe that we can come together to make a bigger and more powerful change as one class, or even as one group.
Ok, I do know how hard this can all be, advanced students drowning with homework, activities that are just breaking us, and drama that we think can never be solved.
One thing you can always count on is yourself.
Friends, music, food…there are so many things that can help us get through our days. Something else that can help you understand how to persevere it is a quote I really like:
“You have to fight through some bad days to have the best day of your life” – Unknown.
This quote really speaks out to me. Sure, there will be days where you just think that you could not possibly go on, but keep in mind, to have a better day, you just have to be willing to fight through your bad days.
No matter what you are going through, remember that you can and you will have a better days; do not let the small words get to you because you matter and you will overcome.
