My Experience At High School

Decent Essays

When I entered ninth grade, I was someone totally different from the person I am today. The experiences I have gained during these long four years of high school have shaped me into the young adult I am. I have had to learn many lessons about myself and friends. Many failures have had to be taken in stride, and I am glad to say that I overcome and dealt with them all in the name of evolution. Many of the hardest lessons I have had to learn about myself, I learned them in Terry High School. I was used to being able to excel easily, and this was not the case all of the time in my high school courses. I struggled to keep my grades above a B average in ninth grade while trying to figure out who I wanted to be as I progressed into adulthood. I would be lying if I said that the progression happened smoothly. In fact, it was one of the hardest times of my life. I was like many of my peers. We were all stuck in the teenage phase of not really knowing whether or not we wanted to be an adult and be independent or if we wanted to allow our parents to handle everything like they did for us when we were younger. This phase in my life was dark, and I often wanted to just end it all. After one attempt, I realized the damage I would have caused within my family, and I was ashamed. It was then that I realized something that continues to get me through rough times. Now I am able to push myself forward by telling myself that if is the lowest point in my life, I might as well keep going
