Confused and Frustrated

i have absolutly no idea what i want to do with my life. im also really frustrated because right now im in school and i feel as though im wasting my time. i feel no motivation to do any work. i dont want to study. i jus feel like givin up but i stay because i feel as though theres nothing else for me to do.

im also afriad of failing my exams and dissapointing my family. they have faith in me but i dont have faith in myself.

im really confused and dont feel as though i could say these words aloud to anyone not even my mother.

i just needed to express myself freely for once.

hey, thanks for the advice, im now seeing this after 3 years... just to keep you updated, ive decided what i want to do, im going into teaching. and although ive made a decision, i find myself questioning it at time "is this really what i want to do for the rest of my life? will i make a good teacher?" but i am not as panicked as before, when i have my doubts, i stop and tell myself yes, you can do it and i feel better.

I know how you feel. I've been there and my boyfriend is there now. He tells me all the time how he hates college and doesn't want to be there, but keeps going because his mother would go insane if he dropped out. I know it's tough, but you have to sit with yourself and really think about what would make you happy. Do you have any hobbies or interests that aren't necessarily academic related? If you do, then maybe you should see what kind of careers you can turn out of them. <br />

I know that everyone in society is screaming about how you won't have a life unless you have a college degree, but I can't emphasize enough that college ISN'T everything. Sometimes it's experience and determination that gets you places. I have a degree and I'm doing what I did almost three years ago because I can't find other work. <br />

This is your life and please don't let anyone keep you from being happy. <br />

Good luck :-
