A 38-year-old guy inspires many as he enrolls in classes again after being abandoned by a woman he previously loved.

The man, known only as John, reportedly had two children and was married, but the woman later dumped him in favor of another man because she thought he was ignorant, according to sources.

The man was driven by his suffering to return to school to complete his studies.

According to reports, the students initially mistook John for their teacher when he enrolled because of his larger frame.

John, gets mocked for his choice, yet thinks he’ll be finished with school by the age of 50.

Internet users have praised his story;

Debbie Fisher wrote: “Congratulations on making your life better. I’m so proud of you. Keep up the good work.”

Hey_Jake wrote: “Such determination is rare to find. The only loser here is John’s wife and I hope he finds a wife with equal determination in life. The ability to get back up and never give up. That’s really cool.”
