You guys are already seniors and I need you to make sure that you pick the correct college. Preferably Harvard becuase we have a bloodline of Harvard students, and I want you two to carry that on.
I already applied... I'm really excited to get excepted. Just think of the reputation I will have just because of my famliy, to be honest I'm made to get accepted.
*sigh*...okay mom, whatever you think is best.
I dont know what your talking about... the pressure mom gives us makes me fell motivated and excited to suceed. And I dont think you understand how crazy you sound right now, everyone knows that we have a reputaion of doctors. So its up to us to provide. You dont want to let down the family.
I wish mom didnt put pressure on us to go to harvard. I still have no clue what I want to do, but it's definitly not Harvard. Besides I don't even know if I want to go to college.
Good morning senior class, welcome to carrer and college readiness. First I'm going to ask what colleges some are attending. So Tracy can you start us off.
what do you mean YOU, don't know what college to. I bet your family is soo disapointed.
Welll... I'm not quite sure... choosing a college is a major life change thats really hard to think about.
Leave her alone Bella...
I see....Tracy you are actually experiencing something called distress. This is probalby becuase you feel that you are being pressured to succed... And your body's reaction to you being stress is exhaustion because you over work your body when stressed... without even knowing it.
These past two weeks I've been super exhausted. And latlely I have been really stuck about choosing which college to attend. Its either the family reputation or be disowned.
You know what Alisha... you're right. I need to inform my mom about what I'm going through.
Well..... based off of what your councler told you. It sounds like you need to sit down with your mom and talk to them about how you feel. So your stress doesn't increase.
Hey mom... I really wanted to talk to you about the college situation. Ever since me and my bother became seniors, you have been putting extra weight on our shoulders. And even though my brother handles it well... it really stresses me out. Out of respect I just want to have the ability to choose a college thats not based on a family reputation.
I apreciate you coming to me and explaing how you feel about the whole college thing. And I do apologize for putting so much pressure on you...But I just wanted to make sure you two have a solid future. And if you want to go somewhere else. I will support you.
