How can I not make everyone upset at me?

Asked by redsky (12 points ) 2 weeks ago

I’ve been going to college since 2012 for a major I don’t even want anymore. And now I’m too overwhelmed with work that I’m stressed out and miserable. I don’t think college is for me. I’m on financial aid so I know I’ll have to pay it all back when I quit, and not only them but also my parents and everyone else who contributed their time for me to go. I feel terrible about it but I’m completely miserable and I just don’t want to go anymore. I was planning on telling my parents today but I know they won’t be happy at all and they’ll be pissed about it. I never really wanted to go to college anyway but I think I went because I was pressured, but now I see this was all a complete waste and I just don’t know what to do about it anymore. I don’t want to make anyone upset but at the same time I don’t want college anymore. For one I know my dad will be very upset with me and won’t accept it easily and still try his hardest to make me go when I don’t want to. Do you have any advice about going about this to everyone? I plan on paying financial aid and everyone else back when I get a job but I’m still afraid of people’s opinions about me.
