It’s always nice when people tell me that my GED was just the “lazy way out” because school was “getting too hard.”
I scored in the 89th percentile on the PSATs. I dropped out of school because I was surrounded by assholes that put me in a constant state of depression, not because I didn’t know my shit.
I get this all the damn time, and I’m sure others deal with the same thing, so I’m here to tell you this: you are a fucking rockstar. If you dropped out, for whatever reason, and you either got your general educational degree, or are working hard to get it, I am so fucking proud of you. There are going to be people who shut you down, or tell you you aren’t good enough; they’re wrong. You didn’t give up; you pulled yourself together and beat the odds, and that’s badass.
Everyone has their own way of doing things, yours is in no way inferior to others’.
