Please help! I cannot bring myself to do something important for my future in the next few hours because I'm a coward, but at the same time I'm in the most perfect situation to end everything and make a statement. What can I do? I'm crying too much to approach the one person I need on my side to move forward with life, but I'm scared to approach her before it's too late. This is my principal, she promised to be my referee but wouldn't commit to anything definite. I've been trying to approach her to get her to say she will definitely help me and when I can contact her, but she just keeps being vague. I'm afraid if I approach her now she'll be annoyed and not give me the reference. But then I'll feel like killing myself if I fail to approach her.
