Personal Narrative: Middle School Without The Support Of My Family

Decent Essays
The big challenge that I got through was getting through middle school all the way to high school without the support of my family. Most students get through high school with the support of their family. Their families helped them through tough times and school problems. I was the complete opposite of those students. All through middle school and up to current time, I was ignored and my family didn’t care when I showed them that I got a good grade on a test or that I was participating in some type of school event and I wanted them to come. They didn’t show any type of care as to how I was doing in school or if I was being bullied or anything. On my first year of high school I realized I was most likely not going to get any type of help or advice

    My parents always talked me about how important it is for me to attend school. My parents did not have the opportunity that I have; therefore, they did not allow me to take my opportunity for granted. I remember watching American History X, and I saw how all races were having a difficult time trying to belong. I was a little too young to understand the premise of the film, but what I got out of it was crucial. I realized that I should be grateful for a lot things I take for granted: I have parents that love me, I have no bullies, and I have teachers that care.…

During my freshman and sophomore year I didn 't study or do much of my homework which led me to not getting very good grades on my tests. I would always be confused on the assignments and projects but I would never ask for help. My parents were not happy with me.…

    I did not like school throughout elementary, middle and the beginning of high school because I felt like no one pushed me or had any faith in my education. When I was a sophomore in high school I changed my entire outlook on my education and became studious. To learn material I had to use resources outside of school and take responsibility for my education. I began to realize that without education I could not succeed and I would just be another person who graduated from Graham High School, the school with very little potential. I began to earn good grades and I got involved with clubs, sports and I even became the student body president of my high school.…

    Starting high school is an overwhelming feeling as it’s the last four years of schooling where it was time to look at my strengths and weaknesses in order not to fail. I never really thought that hanging out with friends would change my focus on school. Although I had every intention to pass all my classes, peer pressure got to me to where school wasn’t important anymore. I wasn’t an A straight student nor was I good at sports, but I never intended to fail any courses. Even though I didn’t pass all my classes, it was the fact that when I failed them, it was my parent’s disappointment where I truly felt like a failure.…

    Growing up, I had trouble coming to a realization that one day I was going to have to contribute to the advancement of human society. I always believed that I could continue to live a life where I was dependent of every basic need from my parents and not have to worry about the problems they dealt with. However, the first day of high school changed all of this for me. The moment I walked into the high school on the first day of my freshman year the atmosphere that surrounded me was far different than the ones I had previously experienced. As usual, some students showed zero effort and had no ambitions academically but there were also students who were striving to make something of themselves and were becoming prepared for the next stage in life.…

    In the beginning of high school, I couldn’t understand the importance of handling my responsibilities, especially when it came to my school work. I just couldn’t find the motivation to hand in stuff like homework on time. I actually started to do less and less each school year. I never try to fix my problem because there were never any consequences to it. I would pass all my classes with decent grades with no problems despite ignoring a lot of the work, but then I was called by my English teacher to stay after class.…
