Family says I'm worthless and stupid because of my degree subject Watch
If you do well in your degree, your resume and work ethics will prove it. plus you'll land good employment prospects if you keep up your marks.
Besides, not all engineering majors go onto work in their field.. many do an MBA, msc management or something totally unexpected if it means getting a better job. so, if you like where you are, don't feed the haters. a token hug
They sound pretty cretinous; be sure to ask them "So where's your degree again?" and I can guarantee even they will shut up.
You have two avenues to pick: lick your wounds and continue to try to live up to their expectations OR disregard them and define your own success.
It should be fairly obvious that you'll never be happy if you pursue the former...
if your family are so horrible and make you feel so bad, in my opinion you should just not be around them. Get a part time job and dont go back to your parents over christmas or summer or any holidays. You can live on your own after uni. Just surround yourself with people who are positive in your life and make you feel good instead. I dont know if you can get a much larger student loan yourself or not to help if you are not living with parents, I did but idk the situation if you stop living at home half way through studying as I already didnt live with my parents before I started uni.
Generally, thanks for all your support and understanding. I'm seriously considering not going back next holiday and just staying with my boyfriend.
Btw, I don't know why this is but people seem to think I'm a troll or this is fake, so just to clarify this is totally real!
that respect is worthless. It should have been there from the beginning. The family doesn't care about her feelings or opinions is the main nasty thing.
There is no solution that will lead to a normal family that respects them apart from starting your own. If the family don't give a **** it will never change.
