I want to pretend the world is a nice place where you’ll be accepted by everyone despite your difference. You won’t be alone – there are plenty of odd balls out there. The bottom line, whether you continue your education or not, is that your will determines the future. My parents always tell me I can be anything and do anything I put my mind to – I believe them. It goes the other way too. If you don’t get your mind on something you’ll be nothing. Fail now and a bad grade won’t be the issue – you’ll face poverty, homelessness, addiction, disease, imprisonment, and death. Failure means you’ll be incapable of taking care of your children, providing a safe home for your family, or maintain a sustainable future. Failure means throwing away your education and doing nothing with the obstacle course you just completed.
There’s no need for me to give this long speech about positive crap you can do with the rest of your life. If you already know what you want it doesn’t matter what I say. If you don’t know, like me, you’re gonna have to figure it out on your own. Life is already hard and I doubt it will get easier. I think school was meant to be difficult because it’s a sample of what’s to come. Having said this – respect the journey and enjoy the final carefree days you have left before making your way in the world. Thanks and good luck!
