I’ve tried to motivate myself to get my GED, because I want to go back to school. No one has helped me. I try to motive myself, but I can’t. I don’t have the strength. When I try to study, I get so mad because I don’t understand it.
I have three kids. All of them have health problems, with my smallest one having the most. I hope that after I get my GED, I can go to college for nursing, criminal justice, or physical assistance.
I’ve taken GED classes before. I took the test in ’04 without studying, and got low scores. Then I took the test again in ’11, and I still have the same scores. I’m not giving up, but what can I do?
Believe it or not, but your own attitude can really affect how you score! You said yourself, “I don’t have the strength,” but that’s not true! You’re still working to get your GED today, and that makes you strong! Strength, courage, tenacity, these aren’t the things that come with instant success. They’re what you have when you don’t succeed, yet keep trying! Believe in yourself first. If you sit down to study, not believing you’ll ever understand it, then you won’t be able to process the information very well. No one would be able to! But if you sit down to study, knowing that you WILL eventually get it, then you’ll start to see an amazing change in how you do. Give it a try! And good luck!
