Life as a high school student is very busy. I am only a freshman, but I still have realized that I can no longer have hours upon hours of free time to mess around with. I have been ridiculously busy with band in the morning and football in the evening, and I often wonder why carry on and put so much on myself.
Then, I realize that I am needed.
Maybe not at the moment, but one day I will be called to do my job and do it well. At home, I am pushed to have perfect grades and to babysit my brother. I often stay up late to get homework done, and I sometimes worry about what I cannot complete. My life has been stressful since the year started, but it will slow down. I try to remember that there is more than the superficial struggles.
I realize that there is a purpose for these struggles and frustrations. What I learn now I will use in my future, and what I struggle with now will help me later when my life is busier with deeper concerns.
