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.
