Good Advice

Fortunately for me, I have rarely received bad advice, though that partially has to do with the fact that I almost only take advice from my father. He is a man who has been around the block a time or two, having lived quite a long time and living a full life outside of raising a child. As I approach adulthood, I find myself asking for his opinions and his advice more often than not, and one thing he has always drilled into my head is that I need to get an education. I can hear him now, standing there saying, “Get all the schooling you can get. I don’t care if you don’t have a job until you’re twenty-five, you need to get an education.” I am a firm believer in that, and I appreciate him for being my drive, alongside my personal wishes. I do not want to be unsuccessful. Perhaps that is just a fear of mine.

This is some advice that I would like to pass along to anyone who is thinking about dropping out of something as easy as High School. As a person who has already experienced dropping out (albeit unwillingly), I have to say that it is much harder to get a GED than to go to high school day-in and day-out. I’ve tried. I’m a personally-motivated person, and it was still difficult for me to try, and the costs weren’t something I could afford. Returning to high school was one of the best decisions I’d ever made, along with moving to a place that had a better education than what I was previously living with. Please, if you’re thinking about dropping out, rethink your decisions and make sure that you are absolutely clear on what your life will lead to.
