Sometimes life hits us all at the same time. And we don’t know how to deal with it. These next few days we will be getting our exam grades back, some will be happy, some will be disappointed. Some of us can pick ourselves back up easily and in a short period of time, and for some of us, it will take a while.
Besides grades, some of us are struggling socially. Maybe you’ve just transfered to a new school, getting use to the system and friends in the middle of the year is tough. Maybe you’re having problems with your friends. Relationship problems. It seems like many things are going on at this point in time. Or maybe you just feel awkward and out of it for no reason? Perhaps that’s me.
Whatever it is, Whatever you are struggling with, hang in there. This is only a short period of our life. We have a whole life waiting for us, to accept the challenge. Junior year is important, grades are important but those will not be important in the long term.
What is important is your friends, your peers. Talk to them, comfort them if they’re down, crack a stupid joke, and just be with them. No matter what plans I had, if a friend, a best friend needs me, I will be right by her side because it is one of the hardest things to watch a friend get hurt. Very hurt.
Hang in there, trust God to give you the strength.
“I have told you these things, so that you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” – John 16:33
