HeerenLo..x 2013- Starting a new life
forever bringing me down. Since I finished my exams I have been looking for a full time job and I was happy because I got an interview, my dad told me that I would not be able to study and work, implying that I am not clever enough to do this. I failed one exam and he keeps bringing this up. They do little to help or encourage me, instead they put me down. I really want this job but already he is making me feel like I should not take it, yet they do nothing to financially support me so how else am I supposed to pay for my exams and books. They always make me feel like I am inadequate and lately I have been feeling so down. Now I realise that I have to maintain focus and prove them wrong, not that I will get a pat on the back or anything! There is way to much pressure that comes from them and I absolutely hate sitting at home because all they seem to do is criticise me. I need a job to make money and get some of my independence back. I will study hard for me not for them. They do not realise how stressed I can get from their pressure. They will always do it, I just need to find a better way of handling it.
