In addition to be a game, math relates to the real world situation in so many ways that you cannot see it if you are not there. You should not deny to yourself the intellectual enjoyment of doing math because other people cannot do what you can. If anybody tells me why I am doing math I will tell him mind of your business.
Never look at the crystal ball about what will happen if you learn math. You may become a tutor, and eventually open your own tutoring firm. Stay on course.
