The let down is hard

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

I have always found it hard to rely on others because I feel like they always let me down. My application for graduate school has not been an exception. I asked the 3 people I felt would give me the best recommendation and would do it in a timely manner but NONE of them have followed through. I even sent them the forms with envelopes that I addressed and stamped for them six weeks before they were due. The deadline for submission is Sunday but I received an email that not one recommendation has been sent to the school. Now I'm forced to make a decision I wasn't expecting to make. Do I try to push the admission date back or just give up the dream altogether? I could get a job with my BA degree but it wouldn't be the type of job I was trying so hard to achieve. The let down has me in tears and I feel so heart-broken.

I want to thank all of the supportive people I have met on sparkpeople. This is absolutely the only place I have found unwavering support and encouragement. I have never been let down when I needed support and ideas to help me on my journey to better health. I need your encouragement now, more than I ever have as I face letting a dream go that I have worked so hard to achieve for the last five years. I'm finding it difficult to find the silver lining right now.

    First I'd ask them if they are going it because the deadline. Then you can say I need it now or just let it go. It's horrible that people you relied on couldn't do it

    Wow, I'm so sorry, people can be so unkind and irresponsible. You went totally out of your way to make it easy for them. I sure hope you don't have to give up your dream. Is there someone that you work with that you could have fill out the paper and turn it in before the due date? Wish I had better advice for you. I'll pray that things get better for you soon.
