Well. It’s been a while…
A very long while, exams are finally over! The exam period is a long, long period but once it’s all over the feeling is so satisfying. Walking out of an exam knowing you’ve tried your best and there’s nothing more you can do now. Something which became prevalent to me during exams was the large difference between those who try and those who don’t, and how easy it is to fall into the trap of acting like you don’t care to impress other people. But at the end of the day your exam results are more likely to stay with you longer than some of the people you call your ‘friends’.
Well anyway exams are finally over and GCSE’s are finally over. We recently made a big decision. We moved from London to Glasgow. London; friends, family, memories, knowing the surroundings and everyone, we’ve lived their practically our whole life, so why the big move?
Many people will ask you why you choose to make a certain decision in life and sometimes you may not have what they deem a ‘valid explanation’ and oftentimes this happened to me and it made me realise. I don’t need to justify my decisions to another person, it’s my life. With all due respect to everyone who raised you and cared for you they have to realise that this might just be the best thing for you right now. It’s hard for everyone to adapt to change, some take it a bit easier than others and some not so easy. You’ll see that the ones who were closest to you who once had the best intentions and wishes for you are the ones who struggle to understand, almost, the decision you chose to make. Because they’ve been with you an awful lot, they think with their emotions and not their mind. So their initial reaction may be quite distraught, shocked and possibly outraged.
This makes it much harder for you who has to go through with the decision, but with a decision like that you must have a long think about it and why you are doing it. Sometimes you’ll forget why you’re doing it, sometimes you might regret it. But in life, I believe everything happens for a reason if something’s meant to be it’ll be if not then it won’t happen. Don’t get too disheartened if something doesn’t happen the way you want it to, you might not understand it at that very moment but later on it may occur to you that what happened, happened for the best.
Nobody said life was easy. If life was easy everyone would be dancing around the streets with smiles on their faces all the time, but that’s not life. Life is facing a series of challenges and situations and the way you choose to approach them which in turn builds and defines your character. It may not seem possible but always try to have a positive outlook on everything. And remember, situations will occur which may affect you but it’s how you respond to the situation, always be the bigger person, be kind and be humble.
