“Is GED embarrassing?”
What an interesting question. Why did you ask it?
My child wants to get a GED and I feel embarrassed
Are you the parent of a high school dropout? Perhaps all the other teenagers you know earned a high school degree. Do you feel embarrassed because your teenager wants to get a GED? You shouldn’t be.
Be glad that your son or daughter wants to pass the GED for whatever reason. They want to move onward with their life, support them, be positive.
I passed the GED when I was 40, should I feel embarrassed?
You need to meet my Aunt Betty (actually an inlaw). Aunt Betty’s GED was a turning point in her life and in her career. She’s retired now, doing well, and never a hint of embarrassment about passing the GED.
If I may pass on some advice my father once gave me:
“If you want to beat a dog, you can always find a stick.”
If you want others to beat you up with your poor self-esteem, keep apologizing for your GED. It won’t help you. Be proud that you finally passed the GED. You’ll never regret it. Move onward with your career and your education.
You’re a 24 year old high school dropout asking yourself, “Is the GED embarrassing?”
No, it’s not. Your parents will be proud of you when you pass the GED test. You’ll be proud. You can even enter college, or apply for a better job.
What do you do with people who make you feel bad about getting a GED or studying for it?
You heard me, avoid them. Surround yourself with people who will support you and be positive with you. Is someone really a friend who belittles your GED studies or getting serious about passing the GED?
Are they really a friend?
So, let’s agree that there’s nothing embarrassing about passing the GED, shall we?
The time you spend being embarassed about passing the GED or studying for the GED is wasted time/effort. Pass the GED. Be proud of it. Move onward.
