Starting High school is the most overwhelming period in an individual’s life. This is because the years spent in the high school lay the foundation on which the professional education and career of an individual are based. In life, everyone must have encountered situations that played a significant role in shaping the entire life of an individual. I have also experienced failure yet still managed to cope with difficult circumstances and attain success in the end.
Hailing from the middle-class family, with parents working non-stop to facilitate me and siblings to attain education, I always wanted to attain the highest grades so that I can have a bright future. Seeing my parents working hard, I also wanted to help them so that I can at least bear my educational expenses. So I started to apply for several part-time jobs. After many attempts, I got a job at a local company that was searching for people to write small blogs. As I like to read a lot and write creative content such as mini stories, I immediately agreed to do the job and started working as a blogger. Initially, everything was fine but soon I realized that it is difficult to manage both school and work together. The constant pressure of school homework, quizzes, and exams along with work commitments was too much to handle. It was my first year in high school and I did not realize the amount of pressure that I had to face.
Although education was my priority just to help my parents I continued my job. My performance in the school was deteriorating yet still I had hope that I will be able to pass the exams. The pressure of exams was stressful and when I saw the examination date sheet I was shocked that my exams were near and I had no preparation. I started to give more time to my studies but due to work, I was unable to concentrate on my studies. As a result, I got lower grades in almost every subject. Seeing my result, my parents were very disappointed. I was so ashamed of myself because I did not prepare for the exams and let down my parents. The low grades greatly influenced me and my health started to deteriorate due to stress. I was admitted to the hospital for a week and was on medication for several weeks. In this difficult time, my family and friends supported me and I was able to recover early. After recovering I immediately started to prepare for the next exams. I also started to organize myself according to the timetable that I designed so that I can balance school and work efficiently. Initially, my parents did not allow me to continue working along with my studies but after my assurance they allowed me to work. I followed the timetable that I designed with full determination and I passed my exams with distinction.
This experience affected me a lot and helped me in reshaping my life. Also, this experience taught me a lot as I was not familiar with the importance of time management due to which I struggled a lot to find a balance between school and work. I also understood how the support of family and friends can impact an individual’s life. However, after this experience, I realized the importance of time management that will facilitate me when I will apply for college. I also realized how stress can be harmful to an individual and it is necessary to not let a single failure decide one’s faith rather people should work hard to cope up with failure to attain success.
