Hi, I'm fifteen (sophomore in highschool) and I grew up in a Christian community all my life. Lately, I've been tired. Tired of everything. I pretty much rank top 1% if my whole grade and I'm basically known as the goody two shoes who follow all the rules. However, I've been feeling stressed out lately. I can't sit and do work. My grades are slipping and it didn't scare me, which scares me. I currently have a musical (a novel + a book) due on Tuesday, a research paper due tonight, a science investigation on sunday and a video following next wednesday. My teacher who knows me since I was in grade 7 told me that perhaps I'm dealing with too many things that I simply don't want to start. I guess it's the fear of failure that's holding me back, but I'm so tired of trying to cope with the pressure of being perfect. I want to do this all for God and I just feel like He's the only motivation left for me to keep on going. I need a break, but not after I overcome all this - which is hard for me to do. I would appreciate prayers. I'm struggling and I need help, but I don't know who to turn to.
