posted by 16 years not doing well in high school on .
Im 16 years old im not actually really doing well in school. I cut way too many classes till this point have 5 overall credits. My guidance consuler told me that i have to take another year and this upcoming summer school i can't go cause i have way to many cuts.
I really want to get back on track and get somewhere in my future where i feel comfortable what im doing. What can i do?
16? You need to change your habits and work attitudes. Cutting means avoiding responsibility. I don't think anyone can do that but you. If drugs or emotional problems are existing, you have to solve that.
OK... you need a PLAN! not just "I'm going to do better." Ask your guidance couselor to sit down with you and help you WRITE a detailed plan of how you are going to solve this problem. You are going to have to ask youself some hard questions... why do you cut class, why do you not do your homework.
Then you are going to have to answer those questions honestly...and decide how to quit doing the harmful habits and get yourself organized.
This is NOT an easy task, and as bobpursley says, you may need help in changing your responses. However.... if one supposes that you are going to live to be 80 (average American age) then you have about 64 years that you don't want to waste.
Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me."
God is always on your side, you just have to allow Him in your heart. I will be praying that you get back on track. But please remember, if you have God in your heart you never have to do this alone.
