‘You cannot stop the waves, but you can learn to surf’


This quote is so true about life. You are always going to have ups and downs, but you have just got to learn how to cope with them. One minute I am on a high, loving life and the next I am crashing down and comfort eating. I am trying to learn how to deal with life’s roller-coaster and it’s not easy.

What I have realised over the past few days is that if you stay positive and have a good support system you will always come out the other side, and are another step closer to your end goal.

College is getting tougher and the work load is getting more and more, and even though I worry about this, my tutor tells me not to as I am ahead of the class. I worry about choosing which University to go to, I worry I won’t get the grades, and I worry I won’t enjoy it when I get there. I know it sounds silly but I think about my social status. I feel like I don’t fit in with my group, I feel that they have all clicked and I haven’t. I understand that it’s not the be all and end all, but want to feel comfortable in my class, I want to be happy while I am in college. I think having the support from other members in of my class will really benefit me in regards to my confidence and these waves of life.

Give that support to other people, and be grateful if you have people who support you in your life, as some people might not get any.
