It’s more common that people get a college and university degree for many reasons, such as necessity, affordability, etc. Just because more people are going to college and university, it doesn’t mean that it’s not an accomplishment to graduate and receive your diploma. You should be proud of your accomplishments, of all the hard work and that higher education.

In that moment, I saw myself at his age and all the years I had been sitting there doing homework and I couldn’t imagine adding additional years. It was time for me to join the workforce.

You should always feel proud of all the hard work you put into anything you do. You should feel even prouder when your achievement is something to better your life. An education will do that.
