I really dont want to go to graduation

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I cant stand the idea of attending graduation. this final year has been so horrendous and i just want to turn my back on this chapter forever. I think of graduation and i want to cry. I am not on track to leave with a 2:1 and that makes me want to forget about graduation all together. I dont talk to many people on my course and it upsets me that I'll be the outsider when it comes to pictures with friends and all that. i dont deserve or see the reason why I should pay celebrate my mediocrity, lack of lasting friendships and my sadness that marred my final year at uni.

    I have expressed my desire not to attend and my father and even my boyfriend has called me selfish on numerous occasions because I have said I have no desire to go despite the fact they both know how miserable I have been this year.

    Has anybody been through this and actually attended their ceremony? Please give me some insight as to how you felt going through the ceremony? Will it be bearable? I dont want to be in a scenario where i run to the toilet to cry as I wont be able to keep my emotions in check. Any help please? xxx

    Aww i'm so sorry to hear that you're feeling like this about your graduation, graduation should be a fun, enjoyable experience celebrating what you have achieved. Who cares if you haven't got a 2:1? You've made it through your uni years which are extremely difficult and stressful at times.

    I haven't had graduation mine is next year, I will be attending probably on my own because I am doing an extra year so I will be in some lectures with people from the year below me. So i know how you feel in that sense, but at the end of the day uni is a personal experience and sometimes it doesnt matter how many friends you have, you go to celebrate YOUR success.

    My advice would be just to think about it. I think you would be strong enough to get through it if you believe in yourself and if you beleieve you have done everything you could have! x
