Your university, your job, don’t define the person you are, you’re not less smart, less interesting, less beautiful because things are wrong in your life, it’s not because you’re failing at school that you are any less loveable. You aren’t what school says you are, not fitting the system doesn’t make you any less of the person you are. People love you for who you are, not your degree. You’re still beautiful, you’re still smart and talented, with skills that are not defined by what you do in high school. Don’t let the system define you, because you’re so much more than a name or a number in a factory.
