I'm going through a rough time with school. I missed about a month of class largely due to personal reasons which I will not go into. As a result, I fell very far behind, and am starting to lose hope about whether I can finish the semester, and whether dropping out would be a better idea. My grades aren't so good this semester so I wondered if I should just go home early, get the Fs I deserve, instead paining myself through the many assignments I have to get done in the next week. I'm losing hope if it's really worth it. From afar, it seems like I'd only be hurting myself by giving in to not working, but I don't know.
I'd like to hear how you deal with difficulties in your life when under constant pressure to perform well, and would like nothing more than to just give up and give in.
