I’m so glad! (: I’ve heard taking a year off helps a lot, honestly, I know a lot of successful people who did and a lot of successful people who didn’t go to college! You’re definitely not an idiot, don’t worry. Everything will definitely be okay, it’s a big step!
Sailor Moon says:
Pursuing education, especially higher education, can be really really difficult.
It can take a financial, emotional, and physical drain. It’s okay if you decide you need to take a break or choose to drop out, take a break, or not go at all.
It doesn’t make you any less of a person.
It’s definitely not for everyone. Even though I’ve been doing well in graduate school, the way other students and my professors treated me has caused me to make a difficult decision: to drop out.
I cried a lot about it but those dear to me reminded me it doesn’t make me less intelligent or less of a good person if I need to take a break or give up on a Master’s altogether. I figured other people might need the same type of encouragement.
Something wonderful is waiting for you, no matter what. Don’t forget that.
