Question decisions! - December 11th 2014, 02:49 PM

So I have this huge problem.
I'm facing a choice about my career and it scares the hell out of me. So I thought I'd see your opinions.

At the moment I'm in my last year of the second highest high school level in my country.
But this year I'm totally falling apart.
so now I have to choose between doing another two years of high school at the highest level or going to college.

I don't think I can do the highest level but I doubt I can do the big changes with college and everything either. At least not right now.
And the choice is driving me insane, cause there isn't a simply right choice.

So how do you guys handle things like this?

I know this must be tough, I had a similar decision last whether to go to university or not. I should say I decided to wait a year and go this year and it was definitely the right decision. Obviously I don't know exactly what you want to do or which one you're leaning towards but all I'd say is base your decision on what you want now and the one you think will make you happiest. Don't think too far in to the future i.e. what will happen in five years if I choose this option etc. pick the option that suits you best right now. I don't know how the system works but I imagine you're young enough that you could change your mind if you think you made the wrong decision. Also, you say you don't think you'd be able to handle either option - how do you know unless you find out? Obviously you know yourself better than I do but there's also a lot left to find out about yourself such as how do I handle big decisions, how do I cope with more challenging studies etc. so go find out!

Take your time, really think about what you want and, despite what you might be hearing, the only opinion that matters is yours! Good luck and I'm sure you'll make the right decision


And if you're scared of the future tonight, we'll just take it each hour one at a time

Wow thank you so incredibly much. I think your advise is the best I've had up until now. (And I did talk it over with people) It really gives me hope instead of choking me with fear. Thank you thank you thank you
