There is absolutely a purpose for you! Right now you’re a square peg trying to fit in an inflexible round hole called mass public education. It’s not designed for your success. Do the best you can, but understand that it’s designed for neurotypical students. Talk to the school guidance counselor about your struggles and ask for their suggestions and support. Don’t suffer in silence — they can and should help you.

Find something that you’re good at or passionate about and do it as much as possible. Start finding your successes and it will help you know you have purpose and define that purpose.
