    Hey guys.

    just ignore me, I am just venting

    I AM SO STUPID!!!! Like, I always do really bad during NAPLAN tests (annual test for years 7,9 and 11) Plus I have no purpose. I’ve been told a million times I have a purpose but what is it then? What do I do? I’m clearly just a useless burden. Even now I’m being a burden. I mean, no one needs to know about my life. Mainly because it’s probably useless.

    You’re not useless, a test result is not indicative of your worth.

    Hi Zoneey,

    I'm so sorry that you are feeling this way. As Giraffe mentioned, a test result is not indicative of your worth at all. Neither is a lot of other things.

    You're still young and you don't need to know what your purpose is yet, if you ever need to at all. I'm still figuring it out at 24 and so are a lot of other people who are even older than me.

    Have you talked to someone about how you are feeling?

    No burden at all.

    What sort of things do you like to do?

    I am from a family of teachers who have their own views on the test you refer to.

    And from my own story there are many ways by which you can reach your goals.

    Looking forward to hearing back from you.
