Could you be a little more specific? What are you feeling anxious about? Are the things you're worrying about within your control, or beyond your control?

So right now, the fact that you're behind on classwork is stressing you out, which is making it even harder to concentrate on that classwork? Can you see the vicious cycle that's going on here? Fortunately, this means that every step you take toward catching up on classwork (which you planned to do anyway) is also a step toward relieving the immediate anxiety. =)

I know it's easier said than done... but do whatever you need to in order to catch up. Borrow notes from friends, talk to your teachers after class, create a study group with classmates, etc. There's a quote I have on my profile: "You can't wring your hands and roll up your sleeves at the same time." Worrying about the situation is just adding to the anxiety, but taking steps toward solving the problem will both fix the problem and relieve the anxiety... which can then give you more time and energy to focus on other problems.

Some things regarding relationships/social stuff may be within your control after all, while other things may not be within your control. It'll be easy to figure that out once you take care of the immediate problem, though. =)

When missed like 2 weeks of school and was also stressed out maybe ask your teacher to change the assignment to make it easier or if you can stay after school so they can help you with your work and keep you on track that helped me wish you luck




Life is too

Short to spend

It at war with

Yourself.

Iím catching stars in the sky because I am fixing the soul within me. May it be from the heart a girl broke years ago or my soul simply repairing itself as it was shattered on my walk on this earth. May the stardust fill those cracks within my soul making me brand new, but never forgetting who I once was.
