My homeland knows a little too much about the distressed degree!
I understand that education is a prerequisite to a better life, but I don’t understand how and when ‘Distressing Education’ started ruling our minds.
The phenomenon of being an educated and a professional degree holder has left a great mark over our personalities. But what about those who emotionally strain themselves for their degrees. You might not relate to this piece of literature directly as you could be standing out in the threatening competition of high scores; but it is about the ones fighting in your social circle.
Just have a glance over your peers and mates, among them few are the ones who torture themselves under study pressure, family pressure, elder sibling’s benchmark pressure, and career pressure etc. They are the ones who probably crave for an empathizing word.

They are already going through a lot. The mental health of every other student is declining. Fortunately, the rest can help them to feel contented regarding their educational degree.
DEGREE IS YOUR ASSET, BUT DON’T LET YOUR PEACE BE ITS OPPORTUNITY COST!
