Getting a degree just for the sake of it - or should not bother wasting my timeWatch
The only thing I've got going for me is my looks, I just haven't got anything to say for myself. I got average GCSEs and failed my A levels twice and I'm very insecure about this.
You could say it doesn't really matter because I actually enjoy working in retail, it's the only thing I can see myself doing and I don't want some fancy career.
However I'm insecure about the fact I work in retail and feel like a degree would magically get rid of my self esteem issues.
But like I said, I still want to work in retail after my degree. When people ask what I'm doing in life, I can say I'm working in retail but my degree acts as a defence lol. I'll just say I couldn't find work in my field of study or couldn't be bothered to do a masters.
Do you think this is a good enough reason to go to uni - to get rid of my self esteem issues? Or should I just get over myself and not bother?
This may be a controversial viewpoint but I think self esteem is a well meant but overused word. For people I have met that dubbed themselves as having very low self esteem, they had a lot of self hatred. Also depression, anxiety and other things. Getting rid of that if that were the issue people still have low self esteem but in an all right place and then can use the buzzwords and techniques widely advertised to raise it.
