    so in my school, there are three majors you can take, business, medical or engineering. i took a business major because i really really want to be an artist, its been my passion for as long as i can remember, and i not interested in the other two.
    however, i never really knew that i could take any two of the three compulsory subjects (I take 10 subjects, minimum is 9) which was economics, business or accounting. particularly because my parents never told me, and i figured it out a while ago.
    accounting is extremely hard for me, and had always been- im close to failing. i told my mom countlesss times that i want to drop accountings, but due to my siblings, who kept insisting that its important (mind you they take a medical major) , my mom wouldnt even listen, and shout at me.
    lets also not forget that accounting has 3-4 classes a week, and i want to spend that time devoting myself to art.
    how do i tell my mom and older sisters this? i cant drop out of it and its something i cant handle.

    It's not easy being in that position. How old are you?

    Tell your mum that you don't have to be like your siblings and that you should be able to make your own decisions for your future. They shouldn't force/emotionally blackmail into picking a subject you don't want to study. If they remain to be stubborn, you could always hide the fact that you dropped it.

    im sorry for the late reply-
    i have recently turned 15, and they just wont listen. everytime i try to talk to them about it, hey would completely drop the topic, telling me that i have to bear with it.
    and i would secretly drop out of it, but a message would be sent out to parents that it happened.
