Is this a bad reason to switch schools? - February 14th 2012, 07:15 PM

For a few years (when I was 12-14 or 15), I had this need to be liked by absolutely everyone, so I changed my personality to please whoever I was talking to. In the process, I kind of lost who I was and I've spent most of this year trying to put that picture back together while continuing to please everyone. Well, I'm kind of ready to drop the act now, but I feel like I can't because everything around me has been the same for the last 3-4 years, maybe even more and it will probably continue to be the same. I feel like I can't change when nothing else is changing. So, I've come to the conclusion that if I finally want to be my own person, make my own decisions and be in control of my own life, I should change the things that surround me first. Since I will be graduating from 9th grade this year and moving on to gymnasium next year (it's common for people to switch schools between 9th and 10th grade), the first thing I could think of would be switching schools. I would get to meet new people who didn't expect anything of me yet and introduce myself as just "me", not as a mix of different personalities and people.
Now, there are other reasons as to why I would want to go somewhere else (higher standards of who and why they'll accept into their gymansium, I would want to go to a school that is inclined towards sciences and maths, switching schools would pretty much force me to learn Russian (I would speak 5 languages then and that would be awesome)), but I think the fact that I feel like I've hit a dead end in my life will continue to be the biggest one. Do you think it's a valid reason for switching schools or will I regret it later?
