Dr.
Hi xxxx , Ms. xxxx will take up your case.
Dr.
Good Afternoon xxxx! I am here to help you, please tell me more about your problem.
Hi doctor, since the last few months I have been facing trouble with my mental health. I don't want to wake up in the morning and go to my college. I want to leave my graduation. I don't know what to do
Dr.
Okay xxxx
I am studying fashion designing from xxxx but my college faculties are always demotivating me. They criticize me for everything I do. They always tell me that I am not worthy of this place
Dr.
Thanks for your patience
Dr.
Hi
Dr.
You wanna discuss this over a call
no I am more comfortable with chat
Dr.
Or chat?
Dr.
Okay
Dr.
No problem
Yes
Dr.
So what I gather is you are feeling drowsy from past few months
Yes
Dr.
Like to energy or interest in doing anything
yea exactly
Dr.
And majority of this is happening because you feel the environment around you is not the way you expected
yes
Dr.
And there are some teachers who criticize you
not some all
Dr.
What are you studying xxxx
fashion designing
bachelors degree
Dr.
Have you ever asked them why they criticize you?
According to them I am not upto the level they expect from their students
Dr.
Okay
but I feel there is a lot of partiality going on in our college
Dr.
Okay
Dr.
How many years are left for you to complete this degree
I am in the final year
Dr.
Oh okay
Dr.
Do you think you are not upto the mark?
but I have a few re exams from the last year
Dr.
Or you're not trying
no I don't think so
I am trying my best
Dr.
That's great xxxx
The problem that I face is these teachers don't help me when I ask them
Dr.
Then tell me how they telling you all this is gonna change the fact
Dr.
Okay
I know but if they will keep on giving me re exams then what impact will it have on my future
I won't get a degree even after wasting lots of efforts, time and money
Dr.
You are aware right the graduation results are not given same college teacher
Dr.
It goes to your university
Actually my college is recognized as the university now
Dr.
And they will be scoring you and not your own teacher
Dr.
Like 10th and 12th
Dr.
Still
So the only scores that matter are of my own teachers
Dr.
It will go to other teachers in your university
My University works in a different way mam, here the results are prepared only by the course coordinator
Dr.
I don't think so it works that way for graduation and more over by just worrying about your results you can not just afford to give up xxxx
I know that
Dr.
Okay
Dr.
But then you will have option of re-evaluation
Dr.
So if you have confidence about your own studies and preparation, you can re-evaluate
Actually our exams are not like in a written way, they are in a practical way
Dr.
See this all coms quite later.. first you need to start focusing on your studies
Okay I understand that
Dr.
See xxxx
Dr.
I understand your worries
yes
okay
Dr.
I completely get it, however we can not forget that what matters is how you are preparing yourself
okay
Dr.
By the fear of results you can not waste your crucial time right?
Yes
Dr.
It is just last one year is left
Yes
Dr.
Then you are done with your college and thosel teachers
Yeah
Dr.
Real life and professions only work on your talent and hard-working nature
Dr.
How much efforts you are ready to put that is all matters
Yea I know that
but somewhere that degree matters too and that's getting difficult for me
Dr.
Yes it does mattersv
My mental peace is destroyed because of this environment
Dr.
But if you work hard , give your best... No one can hold you
Dr.
I understand
I agree with you on that
Dr.
You think you should give up because the environment is bad
Yea maybe
Dr.
There are gonna be all kind of people around you
Dr.
Today it's your teachers
I know
Dr.
Tomorrow your boss or colleagues
Dr.
Don't give up now
Dr.
Take a risk and complete whatever you have taken in your hands
Dr.
Atleast you would know that you tried your best
Dr.
You will be sure you gave your best
it's not just my teachers because along with that recently the friend I trusted the most lied to me. and then my mother is always taunting me since years
yes I completely understand what you are saying
Dr.
xxxx trust me no one has control over how others should behave
Yes I know that
Dr.
You have to fight for yourself and no one else
I know but now I feel tired because I have been fighting alone for myself since very long.
Dr.
If you give up now, it's like confirming your mother or your teachers that they are right
Yes that's true
Dr.
We are always alone xxxx, it's your life and you will have to fight it your way . And that's what make you stronger
Okay
I understand
Dr.
Start focusing on how you can make them wrong
Okay
Dr.
Start working on that thing for which you are there
Okay
Dr.

Yeah
