I am an upcoming college senior, who has been through a lot of emotional distress ever since sophmore year. I’m at a point where I might not be happy the day I graduate. This happened when I got my driver’s license too.
The main reason is not because I don’t see value in the degree at all, but how I put myself in a situation that I did not want to be. I was happy getting the associate’s, but I wished I stopped there. My family has been bugging me to get bachelor’s for years and this adds more burden to me. It’s like as if their “verbal abuse” just took the pride away from me.
In other words, I feel like this bachelor’s degree was just to make my family proud, but I am not fully proud of myself. Am I the only one that feels this now? I know some of you will say that my feelings are nonsense, and that’s ok. I just been having a mental breakdown for days about going back on campus and such.
