All throughout my life I've always been average, and it's about time I embrace it. All around me I watch my friends receiving National Honors Society invitations, while my hands remain empty and craving the invitation I've worked so hard for. The grade requirement is a 96 average, and here I am, at a 94. 2 measly points separate me from being exemplary in the world's eyes. I watch as all my friends get all of these incredibly opportunities that I would love, that I've worked so hard for. As they move further in life, I am stuck being average. I will always be average. I accept it.

Your not average though. Understand that schools only grade one certain type of intelligence. Some things, such as personality types, cannot be graded or scored.
Just because your not school smart, doesn't mean your not above the norm. Schools don't do much in terms of IQ testing, or even motor skill measuring. Your only being rated by 1% of your image.
Also, your life and who you are is a choice. It may not seem like it, but it is. Don't base yourself on others opinions (that includes school grade averages), you are who you choose to be. It's a difficult concept to grasp, but trust me, it's not impossible.
