Many years ago, a manager asked me, what was the real reason


Many years ago, a manager asked me, what was the real reason I quitted school halfway. As she think, if a student needed financial help, should be able to get it. I just told her I am the type that cannot do well in studies. But in reality, it was social anxiety. I was doing okay, first few weeks in school for my diploma education. But the big group of classmates found people to click with and they all split themselves into smaller groups. I was with 2 girls but somehow a guy was trying to form his team of BFF in school too. He just snatched 2 girls with me and added them into a group chat without me and the 2 girls started to avoid, ignore me. They went lunch or hang out after school with that guy and some others. Me being outcast again, leftover days before I quitted, I spent most of my breaktime alone. I sit at quiet area in school or toilet to snack. Because canteen too crowded with people. Also, my family really have financial problems but then I won't quit if people don't make me feel I am invisible. So much unhappiness, I carry with me to work in society. I am thinking if now I take part time accounting certs but cannot make it, maybe I should go back to IT courses again. Because I didn't fail, I just struggle with mental illness.
