I hate being good at math - January 15th 2010, 02:13 AM

I am good at math computers and sience

ok it's not that I hate what I'm good at I hate that I had to trade my life for it


I can't interact properly with people I think too logicly I don't understand people and they don't understand me

if was normal if I was good at english and hated math I wouldn't have half the problems I have had in my life

I would have had freinds in grade school

I would have learned how to talk in socal situations

I wouldn't have hated everyone in that time

I would never have tryed to strangle myself with a power cord

I never would have cut myself

I would have been normal

I would have been happy


I am in my last year of highschool
I can barely talk to my freinds when I do I am eather misunderstood or I sound stuped


I wish I still hated people it would be easyer to live alone if I hated people


wanna talk?

Daniel, it's going to be ok. Honestly, I know tons of people who are ridiculously good with math, computers, science who learn (just like with any skill) to use it to its benefit and have a happy balanced life.

Think of it as a bonus, not an impediment. Like, right now you want to get better at socializing with friends and having a better understanding of people, and you can try to do this, but it's not like math is getting in your way. I mean, it's just something else that right now, you might be better at than social stuff... but you can learn how! I mean maybe you'll never be super suave, but... like neither is my boyfriend, and I'm perfectly happy with him even though he used to be really socially.. silly. You learn. Maybe not at the same time as others.

I think that being good at the stuff you are good at is a lot of fun. Maybe not in high school but certainly in university and stuff, you will meet people with interests like yours and slowly but surely I promise you, it'll be fine.

Well, just because the hormones in your brain are not naturally functioning not as they should does not mean that you can't have a satisfying life. Also this I promise you, it's not impossible!

Have you seen a therapist? Maybe you ought to consider medication, therapy? It seems like you know what could be wrong with you and seem to want to fix it.. these are possible steps you could take?

I don't think that academics are to blame for that kind of stuff. Ever think you may be socially impaired by something different? I'm not that great academically, but I know things for sure. I just didn't concentrate well. But I don't like people, and have a hard time conversing at the same level. Feels like I'm on a plane that they can't comprehend.

Don't beat yourself up over it, but rather, think of the future. If you decide to go to college or university, it'll be much easier to find people on your level.

You can also train yourself, often through therapy, to rewire your beliefs and thinking. In this past semester (my first semester at university) I went in for serious anxiety anf panic attack type problems, and I started working on ways to assess what my thoughts were and how to change them. It's not an overnight fix, but it's been done before if the will is there. I would seriously advocate looking into therapy. Especially in college, it's often so cheap there.

It seems to be like your view right now is a little pessimistic, like you just do not believe that anything could possibly get better for you, but.. that's such a matter of opinion. You can get help for socializing trouble, and for brain chemistry imbalance. The fact that you realize that these are problems you have is already a good step. You just need to figure out the next step. How to fix?
