Drop a subject? keep all 4? what do i do???

For context, I take four a levels: Sociology, Psychology, History and Literature.
The grades I got were (from what I heard)
Psychology: C, C = C
History: B, B = B
Literature: A, C = B
Sociology: A, U = B
My teachers told me that i should drop psychology and resit Sociology to get an A to help with my grades. They said I probably wouldn't be able to keep up with the coursework. But I love psychology. I really do. I don't care about my grades I'm fine as long as a pass, I was honestly expecting to do way worse in History. On the other hand, I would've rather dropped history. Don't get me wrong, I love history and enjoy the classes but my classmates there make me feel miserable sometimes and I sometimes wish I'd gotten a C in history instead of Psychology.
I wanted to keep all 4 because it seemed better this way. I'd get to keep on studying the subjects I like. But it's not logical, is it? I've already got sociology i don't really need psychology. I'm not even gonna study it in university anyways, so what's the point?
What do I do? I've already got my name on the resit for psychology instead of sociology and I'm still adamant about keeping all 4 subjects.
Do you think I'm setting myself up for failure?

What are your plans post A-level?

If it is Uni most only require 3 A-levels so 3 good ones would be better than 4 not so good.
