Education should always come first over your boyfriend being that it’s what’s going to make sure you can support yourself if things were to fall through with you and your boyfriend.
I took the stand to put education before my boyfriend and it showed a huge difference, we didn’t have time to get in pointless arguments anymore because I was always focused on taking the next step in my education. I also cut out half of the time that I spent on the phone with him at night because that could be time spent to get rest and or complete any other assignments due in the upcoming weeks. In with this I noticed I stopped falling asleep in class and I was more alert than ever. I didn’t realize until now how much time and value he took up.
Last year I didn’t take this stand so I began to fall back in certain classes and not challenge myself enough in other classes. The late night conversations and the after school bonding really held me up.
He didn’t think anything was wrong because I simply didn’t tell him my grades were beginning to slip because of him. His grades were effected too although he just didn’t care about his grades as much as I did.
If you are someone who is experiencing failure in some classes or falling behind due to not putting education before your boyfriend I’d encourage you to think about your future and if living off of your parents or even in the street is an option then continue on the road of unhealthy behavior .
But if you decide you would like to take the same stand as I did and create effective steps toward your future I encourage you to cut out any excess phone time or on those weekends you aren’t doing anything take a moment and think to yourself.
Have you read a book or studied for that test on Monday? Simple actions like these will help to create a positive future with or without your partner.
