You have to break the chain

Vritania G,

My mother has always told me that the future rest on my shoulders. She might be right but, isn’t that a lot of pressure. I don’t want to be reminded every single sacrifice my parents did for me. That might sound selfish but I just want to catch my breath. Is it bad that I am happy and mad for all the things my parents do for me. I have a big fear that I won’t be able to break my family’s chain. That make me think what was all the point of this if i don’t succeed. I know deep down I want to make them proud and be everything they dreamed I would be.
