I just feel like I've been a complete failure for the past couple of years and I'm very confused about life and what I want in general... I keep on changing majors and failing in UNI although I don't have to worry about anything else except my studies. I can't believe that I used to be a brilliant student in HS :/ ugh
Is this normal :/ ? It sucks because I'm still treated as a baby by my family, and it's true, I have been way too spoiled, never worked a day in my life, didn't even have to do chores growing up because we had maids, never had to worry about money because my parents get me everything I want...
But now I feel like I want to take my life in charge and I can't? It's like nobody is taking me seriously... How do I prove to my Family that I'm an adult now?

Nope I feel you right now about life in general. I have my degree and I am not happy so I'm still trying to find myself. At 25 it sucks. Looking back I wish I would of taken a gap year and traveled and found myself. Then go to college and go into my passions rather than the money. Money is always great but when you work 60 to 70 hours a week and your constantly tired and you have no life it's depressing. You are still brillant. College is just that tough. You gotta be strict with yourself and not let other temptations get in the way ie GAG haha. Be happy that your trying to find yourself so young that later you'll know what you want to do unlike me. Go after your passions in life. What makes you want to get up in the morning?
I'm the baby of the family but I've worked hard for every penny I got. Paid my own way through school and I'd do it again that way. Maybe that's why your not doing as well cuz in the back of your head you have Mom and Dad to bail you out? I'm not sure. I know that if I failed I'd be wasting my own hard earned money so that kept me going
I'm thinking maybe you take a semester off and work. Maybe get out there on your own. Prove to your parents that you can do anything you put your mind to.0

I still have the life of a little girl. I never had a job. I still live with my parents. Things haven't changed a lot since my teen years and childhood. I still depend on my parents. They don't let me do things on my own just like a grown up. My mom was with me when I was registering for public university. Every student was registering by himself/herself and I was with my mom so she can speak for me, it was embarrassing. Since our car isn't working, I had to take the taxi to go to university. My mom went with me to catch a taxi as if I wasn't capable of doing it on my own. See, just like a little girl. Luckily there are moments when I feel grown up and those moments are special to me because I don't experience them often. For example taking the taxi by myself to go back home. I've had enough I want to be a normal adult. I'll be registering for my 3rd university semester by myself. I'll find a job as a tutor. I will buy groceries by myself, and I'll go in the kitchen and cook. I should make those things happen first and the driver's license can come later. I know if I get it now it'll be useless. #adultlifewhereareyou0
