#MondayMorningConfessions: Do I Choose College Abroad or My High School Boyfriend?
Every Monday morning, we bring your deepest anonymous confessions to the airwaves for what we like to call radio group therapy.
The confessors remain nameless, but the confessions are real—and the situations are usually complicated. This week's Monday Morning Confession is no exception as a young woman who just graduated from high school has a tough decision to make when it comes to college.
I’ve graduated. Life is good. The gifts were great. But the dust is settled and one thing is still lingering--I’ve been in a relationship with the same dude for the last 2-3 years and even tho it’s my first real one, it’s a serious one. Great dude. Older — he graduated when I was a freshman, then we ended up staying in touch. Long story short, I don’t want to go to school here in my hometown. I know for myself I have to leave and for my future career the school I want to go to is a better look and I’ve got the scholarships to get in. He isn’t saying anything but I know that my boyfriend doesn’t want me to go. Like I said he’s great but insecure and I know that long-distance won’t work out. How do I pull off the band-aid? Or do I stay and make it work? - Anonymous
So what should he do? Is there a way for her to keep her boyfriend and still go to the college that she wants to attend?
Right out of the gate, people said this was an "easy" choice.
Many pointed out that one of those two things could be "replaced."
Rosie was one of the few people who did the quick math and realized how sus this situation was from the jump.
A lot of people offered advice that they wish they would have taken earlier in life.
The overall message was people saying that she ultimately needed to spread her wings and "fly."
