19. You know what, one of the hardest things to learn was that
I wasn't going to school for my family, I was going for me. Sure, I wanted to make my family proud--especially those who didn't go. I convinced myself I was going for all of them who couldn't. But that's such a heavy load to give yourself on top of everything else you have to deal with in school.

Learning that my family would love me no matter what, that they'd be proud of me no matter what, and that they knew I had to live my own life made all of it so much easier to handle.

You seem like you know yourself pretty well, and I bet you'll have everything under control and then some.
