Something like entering high school can be a big change! This will influence a lot in your personality and can even change how you act. It is important to remember that changes always lead to other changes. For example, you enter high school (change number one), then you make new friends (change number two), which means you will have more and a busier social life (change number three). Finally, since you don’t have much time left in your day, you start to blow off school and your grades drop (change number four). All of these changes lead to your parents grounding you and before you know it you are in a deep dilemma. Therefore, it is important to remember that life is a cycle and once you go down it is hard to come back up.

My advice: take changes in small doses so you don’t bite off more than you can chew.
