Good Morning EntangledWithU
I wanted to reach out to you and say welcome to the forum and how proud I am that you have found your way here to share how you are feeling and in being so open and honest. This is a really safe and supportive space and I hope we can chat some more about what is going on for you right now.
I wanted to start by saying something that I have learnt from talking to people around your age, that is school age and leaving school age people, and that is a huge myth! See "they" say that school is the best years of your life and I could not disagree more, especially in these current times. I feel like there is soo much pressure on our young people to "know what you want to do for the rest of your life", to make choices that are supportive of careers "for the rest of your life"..to know and to commit to courses or activities that sometimes our young people have no idea about. All this does is make people feel useless and hopeless and I believe feel like if they don't know the answer to these questions then there is no future career path.
I am so sorry you have the pressure of the family business, this is so very much and I am wondering if you have had a conversation with them to let them know of your thoughts and feelings around taking on this business or even accounting in general? I know it sounds hard and daunting and horrific but we can work through that together if you like? I have some suggestions in that space if you would like to chat some more about this.
WOW, playing the piano at assembly, how wonderful and what a special honor to be asked to do that..wow that is really something. I love piano and used to play as a child, I have not really played in a long time but i love the piano so much. I know you mentioned that everything you loved has been taken away from you, maybe your parents are "thinking" that they are doing the right things by you in buying a car and helping you but in fact they are not, once again may be a conversation here could really make a difference for you.
I just wanted to mention something about being a parent, see I have two teenage kids and parenting is hard, we don't always get it right, we try and we think we are doing the best we can but sometimes we get it wrong..there is no rule book and there is no guide. So unless we give some feedback to others on how we feel or how they are doing, these things could continue with both parties missing the point.
Huge hugs to you and I hope to chat some more.
