"My family is suffocating me with pressure to be a perfect student and daughter." (r.i.d)
people always ask me why i’m going into teaching instead of being a writer.
the number of notes on this in less than 24 hours and the number of people who said “same” or “exactly” or “about me” - that’s why. there is so much fundamentally wrong with our system. The only way to change it is from within.
That’s legit my whole life
Our education system is broken for a lot of reasons, most of them having to do with power in the class being taken away from the individual teacher. However, this arbitrary stress issue is not one of them. If school makes you want to kill yourself, you have a stress management, anxiety, or depression issues that are medical factors that you need treated. The problem is not school itself, and if you think you’re going to be able to magically fix that by becoming a teacher where your work load and stress load are going to be triple that of the students, you’ve got another thing coming.
