'7 Little Johnstons': Anna feels family wants to get rid of her as they decide to send her off to college
Anna Johnston added that the family did not want to deal with her and her past problems and it was the main reason for them to push her away
Anna Johnston is all set to take a big step in her life as she gets closer to starting her college. While Trent and Amber Johnston are happy to see her take this leap, Anna does not feel the same. She was not happy to find out that she did not have any say in the college she chooses to go to. Trent and Amber decided that she would be staying on the campus unlike her brother, Jonah Johnston, who stayed with the family.
Anna and Amber decided to go for the orientation but the former confessed that she would have not chosen the college that she was going to currently if she was asked about it. They further hinted the process for choosing the college was more like Amber and Trent deciding what was right and her just agreeing to it. Meanwhile, Amber and Trent tried to explain that Anna was being sent away because they wanted her to be independent. Looking at the situation, the pair knew it was important to involve a third party to get to the bottom of the problem. Amber and Trent thought it would be good for them to meet Dr Gallon, a counselor, who would help them understand where they stood.
Anna confessed that she was sure she was being sent away to college because they wanted to get rid of her. She added that the family did not want to deal with her and her past problems and it had been the main reason for them to push her away. Dr Gallon asked if Trent and Amber were shipping Anna away because she had been disobedient. Trent and Amber were quick to disagree and explained they only wanted to let her go because they believed it would help her be independent. They also explained that most of the time it had been the family fixing Anna's problems but they wanted her to realize how to deal with her problems by herself.
During her conventional, Anna agreed that she knew half the reason for Trent and Amber to make this decision was to push her to face her problems while the other half was because they wanted her out. After talking for a while, the family found out Anna was also worried about her grades and how she would keep up with the studies. Amber thought Anna was worried she would not do well in the class and might face problems like Jonah had been facing in studies. Hearing this, Anna broke down more and confessed that she had a pool of emotions floating through her head.
Trent and Amber made it clear that they were always going to be there for Anna and were just a call or text away. The session ended with Anna having a better understanding of what was happening while Trent and Amber also understanding her stand. The family decided to consult each other as they hoped Anna would be able to grow as a person once she started college.
