(30.4.18 little note) Currently still feeling unwell hence why some of my blogs maybe on different days than others but thank you for being patient and thanks for making Monday 30.4.18 a good view day to cheer me up. I’m plodding through it. Love you all. X
You could look away from this but this title is true I am dyslexic I don’t let it define me as people may use it as an excuse to not be able to do anything. Yet school days kind of think you’re in a bottom set because you’re dumb you’re not going to improve. To be honest I just let them think I was didn’t get much work done anyway because of my class any way at the time plus my teachers didn’t encourage me enough; unless it was the two annoying art teachers but one didn’t really like me I think, one was just annoying but she was trying her hardest to encourage me to do better but I had no hope.
Yes I was bullied a few times for being dyslexic yet they didn’t know that I couldn’t at the best of the times; it was my little dirty secret it still is in someway or another people be surprised, when I tell them that I write but then tell them that I’m also have learning difficulties.
However since leaving school writing was my first major thing I wanted to continue on doing as I did a bit now and then when I was in school but not properly; the fact that writing saved my life in so many ways, from helping me improve my spelling to the point of saving me from going to far with my mental health, sometimes yes I want to give up because I think it’s pointless it’s not getting anywhere to be quite frankly.
You guys help me by reminding my writing does mean something to you all one way or another. By showing love and care that it’s okay to have bad days or weeks when you’re either feeling rubbish or down and don’t want to write anything. I treat my dyslexia and language difficulties as my best friend because I fall out with it a fair bit to be quite on honest with you always finding away around it if I can’t spell something but makes sense in a long run. I prefer to beat myself up when I can’t spell something it gives me that sense of meaning of don’t give up, keep at it and keep pursuing. All I’m trying to say is that people who have dyslexia they shouldn’t give up but just to continue on finding away around it one way or another that’s easy for them.
