Failed to enter University

I do not know if it is appropriate to describe failing to enter University as 'grief' but I surely felt it that way. A year has passed so far, but I am still feeling sad, it feels like my life has stopped. I had to redo my A levels and now it is summer. I am supposed to be having a great time, but eventually I am not! I do not know what to do, I really think getting the result will help me a lot, hopefully be happy once again. I thought that after a year I would feel ok, but that has not been the case!

Failed to enter University
by: Doreen England U.K.

Failing to enter University is experiencing A LOSS. Any LOSS affects our lives and is important to us as the Loss is to you. So Yes you have a right to explore your feelings and you are doing the right thing by talking about how you feel. This way you will be able to move forward better and see if you can do this as a pattern when LOSING something significant to your life.
When you face other losses in your life you will be better prepared to cope with Loss.
Loss of a job. Loss of Health. Loss of a life partner. Loss of a University place. Loss of a pet. Loss of finance. and so it goes on are all losses we incur in life. Problems are there to be RESOLVED. If we can resolve as many as we can then we are fortunate people. Sadly we may not be able to resolve the ones to do with DEATH. As death is SO FINAL. This is a different Loss. If it is a year on and you are still feeling unhappy and feel as if life has stopped. It is now time to see a counsellor and talk things out with a professional. It just may be that other problems are surfacing and interfering with your failure to enter University. A counsellor will pick this up and you will eventually start to feel better. You may go in with one problem and find out that you resolved other life problems. This may even be a benefit to your studying and won't hold you back. You may even get the grades you want. Best of luck and Best wishes.
