Ana: I suggest an informative powerpoint. One of your points could be that it is time consuming to shift. Another is that you cannot perform well in something that you do not like. You will not develop properly and just end up sad and full of regret in the end. Express how much you are passionate about your course.
Marian: Sit down and have a talk with them. Tell them why you want to stay in your course and that you're happy with where you are now. And make sure to stick with that choice. Always keep in mind that you are the one who will have to live with whatever decision you make now and making decisions that do not make you happy will definitely not help you in the long run.
"How do I convince myself that I'm going to be fine?"
Ana: Oh girl I feel you. I think you shouldn't lie to yourself. Telling yourself that you're fine is denying that there's a problem in the first place, which a huge mistake. I suggest some meditation and determine what's wrong. Then research and act on it.
Marian: Try to look back in your life and think about the toughest experience you've ever had. Now look in the mirror and tell yourself that you once overcame that tough experience and you're gonna overcome whatever it is your are dealing with right now. Now make sure you believe in what you just said because if you won't believe in yourself, no one will.
"I found out by accident that my mom is cheating on my dad. What should I do? I think it's coming from the fact that my dad is always away, which makes my mom in need of someone to talk to (hence the cheating part). But I think it's wrong. Should I tell my dad, should I not speak of it, help! I'd want to talk to my mom but I'm not close enough to talk to her and she might feel she's been robbed of her privacy since she doesn't know I know."
Ana: I think you need to tell your mom that you know. Tell her you have no ill intentions and you just want to help her. I think that the best way that your dad would find out is if it's from your mother. Although, I cannot reassure you that they're going to stay together.
Marian: I would suggest that you try to figure out what is really going on first. Immediately talking to either of your parents might cause great stress and grief within the whole family. Do some research and try to find better evidence; and if you do get legitimate proof, sit down and think of the possible outcomes. If you tell your dad about this, how will he react? How will your mom react? You might also want to try to talk to your siblings first! Your siblings might be able to give you a better view on how this all plays out. No matter what course of action you take though, always remember that there will be pros and cons and it is all up to you to weigh them.
