It was a while since I spoke to one of my friends. He came over, and told me he dropped out of high school. He isn’t the first person that has told me this, and won’t be the last. Either way it’s very upsetting. I asked, “Can you return to high school?” and he replied, “yes, but I don’t want others to see me because they know I left.” He is afraid of returning to school, but he wants to. I could see it in his eyes. I told him, “I think you would be very brave to return to high school.” Fear drives many of us, as it drove him to drop out and not return to high school. Later on he told me that he was doing nursing and was helping provide for his family. Sometimes the people that we need aren’t in our lives, but it is up to you to do something about it. He could’ve just stayed away and never gone back to schooling, but he looked at his options and took hold of his life again, without fear.
