Can you please offer me some advice?
Hello again guys! First, I want to thank each and everyone of you for answering the questions I have been asking so far, it means a lot to me! So much intelligence on this site.
Okay now, as of right now, I am a sophomore in high school, next year, I will be a junior. And I have a GPA of about 2.5, not sure. I am not very smart. My parents keep pressuring me about getting good grades and getting a scholarship and becoming a doctor. They say that going to a community college is a waste of time and money. And so you must imagine how that makes me feel. I feel so hopeless, I feel like a failure, like i dont have a future. I know what my passion is, and that is to help people. I want to be a motivational speaker or have my own talk show, or become an author, therapist, or something of that sort. I just want a voice. I know it will be very hard for me to get a scholarship and I will probably end up going to a community college. And I wanted to major in communication. Its hard, I don't know what to do. I want to follow my heart, my calling, but at the same time, I feel like I have to do what my parents want me to do. I don't want to be a doctor, I am not interested in that at all. My biggest inspirations are Oprah, and tony Robbins. I really need some advice on this, so if you have any, please share it with me. Thank you so much.
