I'm in almost the exact same situation. I've been studying really hard because my classes are getting harder, and now, the pressure has caught up to me. I just received awful grades, and I'm honestly ready to give up. For years, I've been holding myself back because of my tentative hopes of the future and my parents, but I know, when I tell them what grade I got, they'll blame me. They'll say I must not have studied hard enough, but I really, really did. I can't handle this anymore. I really can't, and I'm terrified.
