LOSING FOCUS

I am a 15-year-old girl, currently preparing for my SSC exams. Of late, I have not been doing well in my studies and I am getting nervous thinking about what I will be able to do (and what I won’t). I have been lashing out at people.  My parents are trying hard to ensure that I get the best out of my education, but while they are encouraging, they do tell me that they feel as though I have lost interest in studies. I really don’t like burying my head in my books anymore. My friends seem to be doing well. I feel left out. How do I regain an interest in studies?

Dear Roma,

A good education is very important, even if it might not seem like you will use any of the facts and information that you study in class 10. However, if nothing else, you need these scores to get into college, which will set you on the path to your goals. So, even though you might not see a direct benefit, one nonetheless exists. Your parents can only do so much. If you can’t seem to regain your interest in studies, think about how it would be if you are left behind and all your friends and peers move on. Be patient and try and focus on your studies, even if the subject doesn’t hold your interest. Work hard now and you’ll be grateful down the line.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Today you will feel like going green, and Ganesha approves. You could plant a sapling, or organise some dustbins to keep the neighbourhood clean. If you wish to make the world a better place to live in, do it but take it step by step.
