THINK AGAIN - PART 1

Wednesday, 22 April 2015



Not born into a family that cares, not beautiful enough, not intelligent enough, tried too many times but failed, circumstances are not working out in your favor, or you think (oh! you have probably assured yourself) that you are not good enough? THINK AGAIN!

Too many times, we are quick to give excuses, make complaints and even blame others for our misfortunes and we fail to realize that we have the ability to make a change. This is not just some article that was intellectually put together by some ‘brainy’ who has probably not been in a situation that required a second thought.
After primary school education, I proceeded to Secondary school with high hopes and beliefs following my awesome performance in school work, the many awards and prizes I won, and my role as the Head Girl of the school. My parents were assured that secondary school would be a greater platform for me to develop my educational and leadership prowess. Secondary school however, was different, the teachers were scary, there were no playgrounds, and so many subjects! I felt overwhelmed. 

At the end of first term my results did not match up to expectation, my parents were not happy (obviously), I was pretty disappointed and then more overwhelmed! Things seemed to get worse in second and third term, my parents got very concerned and asked questions on, what I thought the problem was, if I understood what I was being taught etcetera. In JSS2, things improved a little bit but still I was just barely average.

 I obviously could not win any prize with my scores. In JSS3 my dad tried his best to coach me for my JSSCE exams in all subjects, but the lessons were only good enough to get me to pass, nothing splendid however my junior sisters were doing so well in school it was too hard not to compare, even though my parents didn’t, I always did. I wondered so many times whether my academic excellence in primary school was a big mistake or if I had just suddenly become dumb. I knew this was not the life I wanted but it seemed there was little I could do about it. 
To be continued... 

But hey! have you been in this situation, what did  you do about it? Please leave your comments, I will love to hear from you!

Thank you!
