unsure if school is the right path
So, I am currently in 5th year in Secondary School in Scotland, and i am supposed to be working towards my Highers. I have always hated school, and the find the whole school experience extremely overwhelming, as i suspect many people do, however it has gotten to the point where i no longer care about my education, and i have absolutely no motivation to try and gain any qualifications. I haven't been in school this week due to other issues, but i don't think school is the right path for me anymore, i am currently applying for a college course that begins in January of 2021, as part of my plan, however i feel as though if i leave school my teachers will be very disappointed, and so will my parents. I have spoken to my parents about leaving, and they say they will support me either way, but i get the feeling they want me staying in school. However i really don't want to look back on my past and regret making this decision. Any advice?
