What do you want to do? I'd love to be good at a subject, but academics are not for me - just not who I am.
Right now I do AS Economics (which I want to do at university), Maths, Psychology (which I'm dropping this year) and Sociology. What do you do instead of academics e.g. are you working instead of at university?

I went to uni... for 6 months. I hated it. Everything was wrong and I was more depressed than I've ever been before... That was just my personal experience though.

I've now got a job in a hospital (I'm a healthcare assistant - very low old style nurse, basically, but with none of the nurse stuff) and I really enjoy it, I'm looking to train as either a paramedic or a nurse in a few years time. A lot of my job is patient care and interaction - Something that can't really be taught. If I wasn't doing this kind of job though then I'd probably be working at a riding school or something.

(P.S, I dropped Psych at AS too :p:)

You ride horses? Wow that sounds fun, wish I could ride a horse, but I'm scared of falling over and stuff. Well at least you're doing something that you want to do, not being swayed in any particular path you don't want to go on. Wish I could have more control over my life, instead of being so scared of everyone and everything

Yeah, I've ridden since I was 5 - Currently though, I'm at the end of a 5 month break and have my first lesson since January on Saturday. Falling doesn't bother me at all. If I fall off, well, I either dust myself off unharmed or they phone an ambulance which has morphine on board so it's all good! :p: I'm pretty fearless around them nowadays, not sure if that's a good trait though.

The one thing that I've learnt in the last year is that you can't make yourself something you're not, it's like shoving a round peg into a square hole. You might not have any control in your view but you really do - You can make yourself a great economist... or you could sit there and wish to be a great economist. I can sit on a horse and make him go over a high jump - Or I can sit there, and hope he goes over it, doesn't mean he'll do it if I don't take control.

That's true, but I hate how I naturally find myself changing to fit in to everyone else's expectations, and how my family control me. It's like I'm a pushover (tbh I am) and anyone who chooses to take advantage of me is able to do so. Not good :|. Anyway I'm off to bed so see you around :hugs: x

It'll come for you, it takes a bit of time but it'll happen. One day you'll sit up and realise where you want to go in life for the next few years, and you'll be happy with how you're getting there. Might be 6 months, might a year, might even be 10, 20 or 30 years, but when you figure it out - You'll know. Keep on going with what you're doing now and keep your mind open, so you're prepared when you find out, but don't focus too much on what other people want. Do what you can to please them, but remember - You have to live with yourself when you get to 90, not them.

You sound so much like me! G'night :hugs:

:console: You are strong enough, you're so much stronger than them. It's not, we all touch so many people in our lives in positive ways and unfortunatly sometimes we don't realise it, but you do :hugs: They're not right.
