MOST STUDENTS believe that being in high school and college are two of the most stressful times in their lives. The pressures and challenges rise for American students to make good grades and “fit in” with their peer group is increasing.
Because of these pressures, many students feel frozen, stifled, scared, confused, angry, cheated, and exhausted trying to keep it all together. They feel like their personal time belongs to someone else. They may at times feel like they are unproductive doing things that are not meaningful or make sense, or they are confused about what to do next, scared of making a wrong decision that will ruin their life. Adulthood seems impossible. They may feel unsupported or not accepted by family and friends, which leads them to hold back being themselves, or do things that are not healthy.
If you are a teenager or young adult, some of these descriptions might sound familiar. If so, you are not alone. It is normal for you to wonder: “Am I doing things right?” or “How can I enjoy school (and life) with all this pressure? Where do I fit in? Does it have to feel this hard?” or “Why am I doing all this? Is it even worth it??”
What we know is that many students “do” school work and other things in life just to be accepted by others or just to get into college and get a good job. In trying to obtain these outcome goals, they tend to lose their intrinsic desire for learning and may stop taking part in activities they are passionate about because either they don’t have time, or they are led to believe that going “off-track” will take them away from getting into college or being successful in their life, or lastly, they are just plain scared to try anything for fear of failure or success.
Other students may fold under this pressure and might even quit school. Even those who learn to cope can become sick, tired, or unmotivated; they may temporarily turn to alcohol, drugs, obsessions with food, video games, procrastination, shopping, lying, anger, or anything not to feel all the stress in their life. Even though, they might not be at the level of quitting school, we know that every student at one point or another asks the BIG question: “Why am I really here?” (Referring to school and life.) In other words, they want to know their purpose in life and what it is going to take to get there. If they are not asking these questions, it’s time to ponder them.
The Live Your Legacy program helps high schoolers get up close and personal to begin to take responsibility and gain clarity in answering:
“Who am I?” “Who do I want to be?” “How do I want to feel every day?”
“What am I going to do with this one sweet life I have?!”
There are many wellness and self-leadership skills and concepts that will support your positive path into college that you will rarely learn in school BUT you CAN LEARN THEM NOW. One of the biggest challenges students say they have on their journey to college is: lack of confidence in what they’re doing.
