Before I entered college, some people told me that those would be the best years of my life, so I’ll better enjoy them.
They ended up becoming the worst years of my life; I felt lonely all the time, I failed a lot of my tests despite being a good student in high school and I even went through a depression in my second year for several reasons. The fact that those were supposed to be “the best years of my life” didn’t help too much, it made me feel that I was doing something wrong.
My sister reassured me, she told me that college was a horrible for her as well. She was a lot happier once she finished it, she found a good job and now she is happily married.
And it wasn’t a complete hell for me either, I came out of the closet, I made some true friends and I made a lot of progress with my depression; I found interests in new things outside college which helped me to retain some hope.
What I want to say with all of this is that college isn’t really supposed to be anything, It’s a lot of things for different people, and they’re not the only important years in your life. And I believe that it’s healthy to feel however you feel.
