I really want to start liveing! - July 30th 2010, 02:52 AM

So i'm 15 years old,i'm going into the 10th grade this fall,i'm home-schooled,but the big problem is my parents won't teach me at all,I havn't done any school work all of my freshman year,i'm still learning things I shouldv'e learned in the 5th grade,I have a learning disability,which makes it harder to deal with not being taught b/c if I were in public school i'd be in all special ed. classes,and I have the chance to graduate early with my home-schooling program,Pennfoster is the name of it,and I can't go back to regular school b/c my mom said they would make me re-do my freshman year b/c I don't have any credits with them or somthing like that,my unreal plan is to get all my work done this year,graduate,and then get a good job,possably go to college online,but my mom keeps trying to convince me to drop out and work at Hardees,but I wanna be different than the rest of my family,cousins,aunts,uncles,etc. they all dropped out and they're all extremly poor,some of them are like in their early 20's working at gas stations,and one works at Hardees,one is in prison,and idk I just don't wanna be a failure like them I actually wanna be better than that,and actually do somthing with my life,I don't wanna have my electric shut off for a week like my cousins,I wanna be able to pay my bills,and stuff I wanna have a better life than that,I wanna work in a glamourous city,in a big building,with an important job,but it's hard to do when i've got nobody supporting me,encouraging me,or motivateing me to meet my goal,and right now i'm planning on selling avon,or working at the nearest library,I already asked if they were hiring but they said they're not sure if they need help at the moment or not but what can I do to make my plans go well?

~~you doubted me then, but look at me now~~

i was in the exact same position. google like the job center or places like that, depending on where you live... anywhere that could have recourses for you. dont drop out. they would make you retake. i had to retake 7th grade because of it. but thats not necesarily a bad thing. its helped me alot. and if youd be in special ed, nothings wrong with that. i have friends that are in it. i dont even go to regular school. i go to a alternative school, that has counseling, a psychiatrist, life skills, and then the regular schooling part.. theres lots of options, you just need to research and find the best one for you. PM me if you need more help? i totally understand where your at.. im sure everything will be ok (:

Feel free to PM/VM me if you ever need someone to talk to, or just want someone to listen. I'm also always up for making new friends.

Well the best I can tell you is don't give up, if you can dream it, you can do it and your unsupportive family is just an obstacle in the test of life, I hope you stick to your goal I and I'm sure many people here on TH would be very proud of you I wish you the best and remember don't let ANYONE tell you that you can't!

"No one said it'd be easy, they just said it'd be worth it!"

The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows.
It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward.
How much you can take, and keep moving forward.
PM me if you need to talk about ANYTHING.
