this probably not worth writing on this website but.....

 I failed my school.
I didn't tell my parents and i don't want them to know.
after days of crying alone and feeling ashamed that i put my parents down., i finally found another route to access university as my parents & I want. But it will take me five years to finish that uni course and i told my parents about it, i said it will take 5 years instead of 3. My parents are from different background & education is number one in their life. They are annoyed because it will take me 5 years not 3. i know this is ridiculous but they are depending on me.They want me to finish quick. My mother keeps on comparing me to my friends and how they already started university. It kills me to hear all the negative comments about myself. I know this sounds so stupid and not worth all this sadness but i swear its killing me. i'm scared of failure and disappointing my family. Im scared i might fail everything again.  Im always thinking of dying because of school life and it hurts me to see my parents thinking negatively of me. My mum's always throwing hurtful words and i cant take it anymore.

Look at what you HAVE achieved. my goodness, some people dont even make it through school to be able to reach a point where they can apply to university. You have achieved so much already, you must be extreamly bright to have been able to get where you are now.... You are an individual, and you didn't just walk away, you opted to take a different route! so what if it takes an extra 2 years, you will get there in the end. you had the strength and ability to get yourself in to university one way or the other. you could have just walked away. you didn't. and you should be praised for the fact that you have continued the path to university.

You're an individual person, and you only get one life, make sure you live it doing what you want to do, and doing what makes YOU happy. be proud of what you have achieved so far, dont compare yourself to any body, because they are them, and you are you. your parents should be proud of you.

Don't let any one grind you down, all you can do is your best. Enjoy  life and enjoy the course that you are going on.

Good luck in all your future goals, you can do any thing you put your mind to. don't worry about what other people think, do it for yourself and be as happy as you can.


Take care, and be proud of what you have achieved, it's a lot more then others ever have or will
