Obstacles to your school career
Dropping out
Remind yourself of your personal goals! What would you like to do with your life? What job would you like to have? To turn these dreams into reality, do you need to stay in school?

Relax! Are you putting too much pressure on yourself? Do you enjoy going to school and seeing your friends? Are there subjects that you like?

Don't lose sight of the big picture. Don’t forget that school won’t last forever. Even if it’s tough now, you will eventually move on to other things. Would it be easier to get motivated if you saw school as a temporary means to get where you want to go?

See clearly. When things aren’t going well, you might tend see only the bad things. But do you remember your successes and the things that worked out well? Is school work the only reason that you’re thinking about dropping out? You know, if it’s partly because of interpersonal conflicts or bullying, there are solutions other than giving up everything! Do you think that your motivation will come back in the short or medium term? Are you sure you have to make the decision to drop out now?

Think about it! If you’re thinking about dropping out of school, make sure you find out if you can or not. Officially, you have to stay in school until the end of the school year you turn 16.
