I’m scared stiff by the prospect of finding a job after I was bullied at school

DEAR DEIDRE: IF I pass my degree, I’ll have to find a job. But I’m scared stiff by the prospect.

I’m a 27-year-old man and falling behind with my studies. I want to finish my degree and get a great job but I know I’ll end up quitting like I’ve done before.

I’m hanging on to this course by the skin of my teeth. I did well enough in school but then my friends left and I was bullied.

I developed depression and anxiety, losing all my motivation along the way.

I did get a Higher National Certificate and enjoyed that. I want to feel the same sense of achievement now. 

DEIDRE SAYS: Bottling things up isn’t helping you. 

Talk to your tutors about your struggles. After all, they are there to help you.

Your fear of fitting in at the workplace is holding you back. The bullying you endured at school had a serious impact but understand that not everyone is a bully and settling into work will be good for your social life, as well as your bank balance.

Find the means to explore why you are doubting yourself through my support pack on counselling.
