High school is the best time of your life! You’ll never regret what you do in high school! Do you ever get tired of hearing that? That’s all my mom ever told me growing up. I'll be honest, hitting middle school I realized that depression and anxiety from school were real things.
My mom always told me, “Things will get better when you get in high school! Trust me!” I believed that for my junior year. My freshman year was very difficult for me. I had a lot of mental health issues that emerged starting high school. They progressively got worse over 2 years, but my junior year was a game-changer for me. I made new friends and began to turn my life around in the best way possible.
Overall, the biggest thing that I would love to tell someone coming into high school, is that it is only enjoyable as you make it. It also very much depends on your environment. If your teachers care about you, you will care about their class and work. Vice versa, if they don’t show care for you, you are more likely not to show care for them.
High school is only as amazing and the best time of your life if you make it that way. Trust me you are going to hit a lot, and I mean a lot, of rough patches. One thing I learned is you roll with the punches and get back up and try again tomorrow! Never give up. There is something for everyone to look forward to in life. It may be a pretty minor thing that you have to look forward to, but most of the time it's the little things that count in life. It’s the little things that keep you going every day!
