Girlfriend - - GF FEELS -

“The last time I cried was over the stress of year 12 ex­ams. I was do­ing a project worth a big chunk of my fi­nal marks. I was wor­ried that I would not per­form as well as the rest of my class­mates, and started to feel over­whelmed, wor­ried and anx­ious. I cried a lot – at school and home – as I had ded­i­cated so much time and ef­fort into this project, but thought the ex­am­in­ers would not be sat­is­fied. At times, I feel like school stresses peo­ple out to a point where it’s un­healthy and un­nec­es­sary. I made sure to con­sult fam­ily mem­bers, who com­forted me, and I re­alised that they will be proud of my achieve­ments no mat­ter what.” – Pa­trick, 18.
