Is it normal to feel like a waste of a person after seeing ACT/SAT scores?
I’m godawful at math and taking standardized tests as it is and recently I got to see my scores on the ACT and SATs, and they’re not what my mother or girlfriend would be too happy with, so initially I’m feeling like absolute garbage and pretty much just wanting to crawl in a hole and die, my interests and values have nothing to do with math or meaningless memorization. My mother was extremely disappointed in my first ACT score of somewhere in the lower 20’s, my girlfriend never asked about it.
But today I got to see the scores of the retaken ACT and my first SAT, 24 and 1440 respectively. I just sunk and hate myself far more than I ever have because my girlfriend has come down on me multiple times for not having an exact outline of what I want to do with my life (despite her not really knowing either) and just seeing those numbers make me feel like I’m rather worthless, even though I could care less about what silly numbers apparently dictate my value as a person.
