Ok,this may sound like a stupid question but I'm just worried about my marks.
So,next year I'll be in High School and it will be my first year studying philosophy.
All my friends say: " Oh,philosophy it's SO hard!" or "If you don't work a lot you will get negative marks.." and etc,.. I'm just starting to be worried about it. I think it's normal that someone that goes to high school worry about new subjects,difficulty levels,.. But I'm just too worried!
I consider myself an inteligent person but I'm afraid of failling Philosophy and it ruins my marks! I think I may be a bit "dumb" or immature to understand all that "complicated thoughts" .Although I have no idea what I'm going to learn lots of people say I need to have a great reasoning and know how to express what I'm thinking. And I think that's the big problem because I think I've got a good reasoning and I'm good at writing (I'm good at English,Portuguese,..) but I'm just bad when I wan't to make another person understand what I'm thinking :S
Do you think this is a big problem?? Is philosophy SO hard than that? Can you give me some advise or tips to be good at it? (You don't have to say to study a lot and being concentrated in classes because this I already know), I'm also a bit shy so T think that's the reason I'm so bad when expressing what I want to say!
Thank you for your help,and I'm sorry if there are some mistakes in my english.
