Senior year is suppose to be the best year of high school right? Right, but it can also be the most stressful year of high school as well. I’ve always been in the church, so I wasn’t really nervous about going into my senior year because I knew God would be on my side… Well I’m only halfway done with my senior year and not to long ago I had a thought. A terrible thought that I myself didn’t think I was even capable of… I thought about giving up on God, because it was obvious that he had given up on me. I couldn’t understand why God kept putting me through what he did, over and over again. I didn’t know what to do and didn’t want to talk about it. I told my best friend and he helped me through it. I honestly don’t know what would’ve happened if I didn’t have my friend there to help me. I might have completely given up and I wouldn’t have been able to type this today. This is only part of my story, thanks for reading.
