Educational dilemma

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

My advisor found two courses that would be good for me, but I am nervous about having another bad semester, so I want to curl up and hide from them.
Do I take the class(es) and catch up with my cohort?
Do I keep the program on hold until my life is more settled?
Do I cower away from doing the work on both my life and my program?
Door Number Three is obviously the worst choice, but it sure would be easy, in a way.
But hiding from difficulty just ensures that it will still be there.
Being a grownup is not as much fun as kids think.

    We never grow up! Just go through adolescence periodically. As to school, you may just surprise yourself. I failed/barely passed econ in college my first go round, had to take an econ and a math (Wharton school of business credit) for my professional certification, studied on my own and made it. Being an adult has its upside. You can do it if you want to. That being said, people at work hated when I did those courses and my friends recoiled but it was about me conquering my demons and moving forward to the life I wanted. Think about it

    Can you take just one class so you can spend your energy on that? Keeping life on hold could last forever; there's ALWAYS something that gets in the way. Wishing you the grace to make a good choice. Good discernment question: What is most life-giving? instead of life-draining?
