During high school I was facing extremely difficult circumstances and I ended up dropping out. (I don't have a child or anything) Anyways, I kept this a secret from everyone and moved onto community college. I am now at a university in the National Honors program. However, my significant other and friend of seven years does not know that I never completed high school. I am nervous about telling the truth, even though I am a successful college student now with a promising future. What do I do? Help.
Why do you feel like you need to tell them? Just curious, not saying that you shouldn't. I feel like you can really just approach this very directly. Like you said, you're extremely successful now, so it's not like your past has significantly hindered you, and you have a bright future ahead of you. If you're asking how or when to bring this up, it is graduation season, so you can totally slip it in. Say you're scrolling through FB and see a picture, you can just be like "hey funny story.. I don't think I ever told you, but did you know that I actually dropped out of high school way back when?"
Just keep in mind that everybody has had made some less than smart decisions in their life. And anyone claiming they haven't is liar. You have come a long way it sounds like, and were able to overcome that choice and push forward with determination to better yourself. Just tell them and explain that it makes you a little embarrassed or whatever, but girl don't be. You sound like you're doing well. Keep it up
You don't have to just tell him out of the blue. Wait till that topic comes around that's all. Plus you're successful now and happy and that's all that matters. It's alright hun don't be afraid. If he can't handle that then you know he ain't right for you.
Just tell him the entire truth without leaving a single detail and I am sure he will understand.
Don't be like 'I dropped out of high school' just say 'I didn't completely finish high school' and you can tell them it's honestly not important because if you would have finished high school you probably wouldn't be where you are now...
