I was completely depressed when I realized that I didn’t enjoy college and I ended up dropping out.
My parents were pretty disappointed in me but my mother was able to understand.
She realized that I did say I didn’t want to go to college because I didn’t know what I wanted to do. All the work they gave me in college suddenly became a nightmare for me and I came to find that I couldn’t handle all the pressure. Also, I was dating who I thought was a nice girl, but she ended up cheating on me. That made it so much more difficult to focus on my school work and I kept handing in late assignments until I decided to just give up. I didn’t know where I was going with college and I wasn’t sure that I was studying for the right thing anyway. My parents told me that I would have to pay rent for as long as I stayed with them, which I didn’t mind. I was depressed and all, but I was still working at least. My best buddy asked me what was going on with my life and I let him know. He said it was a shame that I couldn’t find some type of career that I really enjoyed. I agreed and I was still bummed out. Then he said he knew a good career I could go for, becoming an HVAC technician! I wasn’t sure about it at first, but he told me how easy it was to earn my HVAC certification and then I just had to find a good HVAC company to work for. So I went for it, earned my certification, and things are starting to look up for me.
