I’m a 22 years old boy who’s been constantly torn apart from within, I have always been seen as the black sheep in the family, I mean everything I do comes back to haunt me. I finished secondary school 2013, took Jamb but didn’t get through, then 2015 came and got a pre-degree form for Adekunle ajasin University located in Ondo. I scaled through the exams, got admitted but I need was to pass Jamb for the same year. I didn’t make the cut off.
I was so ashamed of myself but I believed I still had time, so I came up with a lie, what I was going to do was pretend I actually got admitted to the school, then with the money given to me, I would get another Jamb, pass it and be a student…
Unluckily for me, I got found out by my cousin in school who told my family, now they are requesting for my matric number and password, which I don’t have. I’m too deep in the lie to say the truth because I know I’m most likely going to be disowned (my dad has made that clear). Now I’m thinking about cutting ties, staying in school and try to come up with some money so I can really be in school and study.. only then can I tell them what happened.. I don’t know, I’m pretty confused and would be grateful to any advice, I’m lost but I’m hoping to find my way.
All I see is a guy, who’s living a life trying to impress his parents
My question is? What exactly do you want to become in life? Because I don’t see a university as your point of calling.
Sit down and discuss with your parents. Tell them who you really are and want to be. Stop wasting their money on Jamb and when you finally enter, you graduate with a 3rd class, thereby making issues worse.
Be a man bro. Define yourself to your parents and whoever cares to know. Stop the lies. They won’t take you far
