having a really hard time recently with feeling like a failure. I grew up being told that I was so smart and capable and that I could do anything I set my mind to. I always was expected to do great things. I was in gifted programs, went to an accelerated high school, and started university at 16. but recently, I've been struggling so. much with school, I'm only taking one class and I'm struggling so much. I had big plans to go to school and do something amazing and I feel like I'm wasting my life

      Don't just limit your education to a educational institution. Book learning is only half the battle. Yes knowledge is power, but so is WISDOM. Read different things outside of your college curriculum.

      It sounds like for a young age you've had a lot of pressure put on you. It's absolutely OK to do 1 class or no classes for a while. Learning is a lifelong skill that you can return to at any point. You're not wasting your life either, you're gaining an insight to how stressful and difficult life can be which will help you relate to others. I recently read a meme(!) That I've taken to heart.... I have a 100% track record of surviving hard times. You are winning 100% at life, take a well earned break, think about what you would honestly like to do and slowly start again. Sending hugs and positive thoughts x

      Listen it is how it is honestly. The fact is you do have everything you need, it’s just hard with the diagnosis but don’t let it stop you from feeling like you can’t do anything. It’s just a pause for a bigger and brighter beginning, you’ve proven how smart you are so your capable of doing it again. Life hits hard, it’s always going to be the toughest battle. Don’t stress about the future, take your time in the present to love yourself and realize how much you’ve achieved. A lot of people can’t be you or have your level of intelligence your unique, don’t allow yourself to doubt. It’s hard to get out when you doubt be ambitious have a positive look even when you don’t see it! If you think you can then you can, if you think you can’t then you can’t 😃😁⭐️🤜 take care of yourself. Little things add up
