Failing and depressed. Advice please?


So I posted here over a year ago about this one class I failed and how bummed I was about it. Things got better for a while. But now they’ve gotten worse. I’ve failed more classes since then and failed most of my classes this past semester. I take enough classes that the easy ones are keeping my GPA afloat but I’m failing classes I need for my major. I’m going into my senior year and I don’t even know if I’ll be able to graduate on time. My parents are amazing and my biggest support but I’ve been lying to them about my grades for so long that if I tell them now I know they’ll be angry and never trust me again and I don’t think my mental health can take that. I don’t know what to do anymore. I really don’t want these grades to affect any post grad plans. I also want to be able to graduate on time otherwise my parents will be disappointed.

As soon as I saw my grades I signed up for summer courses to bring my GPA up again. But being here is even more depressing since my grandparents just came from abroad to visit for the summer and I’m stuck at school and not getting to spend time with them.

Has anyone been in a similar situation and how’d it turn out for you? Or if you are in a similar situation and have advice?

Hello!


What type of courses you failed and mostly what are the reasons why that happened? Ask help and buy a helper for the issues which you have.

No, I don't speak English and that is a secret of my happiness!

Hi there, hope you're doing well.
I am in the same boat as you. I too failed many classes in college and I'm taking easy pre-requisite classes to boost my GPA. My parents are also the same, they're my biggest support and Idk what I'll do without them. As for grades, I'm also a liar and I remember I would edit F grades to B on my transcript so they know that I'm doing well and not failing. I really don't know how I'm gonna come out to them either because I can only picture them yelling at me and I'll break down and go crazy. Yikes. I've actually talked to the counselor before, and she advised me to tell them the truth but then I don't think I'll be able to cause I'm such a softie and I cry very very easily.

No more staying indoors
there are battles to build and cities to burn
carpets muddy and waking to earn
someoneís to something, and somethings to learn
come now, no more staying indoors

May I ask why are you failing though? What program are you in? Maybe you don't like that program? I'm in Business. I have thought about dropping out several times before but I'm pretty sure my parents won't allow me to do that.
