Since this happens to be my biggest vice, to everyone. I am so.caught up in comments from family.(they want me to attend a vet school in India or want me to do masters) But in my heart i wanna be a doctor. I wanna give my gpa (improvement) a shot. My gpa is 3.7 i want it to be 3.9 and then do mcat in summer. But they keep saying that i am very stupid (i did very bad on mcat) I feel like i dont even exist anymore. Never have i experienced so much emotional pain. (But its not like i have not tried) sigh To avoid this i listen to shabad (anand peya, or waheguru simran) But see the problem is that i recognize that this is running away from reality. It seems to everyone that i am crazy but i just do not even have anything to say anymore. Am I just emotionally weak or a coward?

(Ps this the issues are not bollywood type dramatic, its about school)

People will say whatever. Parents will say whatever. That's on them, not on you. Listen to shabad is not running away. Why do you think that? It is choosing to tune yourself to the Bani rather than engaging. That is not cowardice. It is a conscious choice. All relationships pivot on two things, effective communication and love, you cannot change others, but you can change yourself.

When you deepen your relationship with your own soul and with your Guru, then the rest of your life will come into alignment. Without that, life will be a roller coaster of ups and downs.
