When I was small, I favored my left hand when it came to writing, sports, eating, etc.
My parents, teachers and other misguided, bossy taller people always would demand that I change the hand I was using and forced me to be a "righty".
Deep down I feel I'm a "lefty" . I want to go over to the left, but I fear I would be ridiculed and ostracized.
Why do you think they did this to me, and do you think it's Okay to change positions now, after all these years?
Please, share your wisdom,
LEFT out in the cold, in Alabama
Dear Left Out,
Upon researching this troubling trend of older bossy people thinking the being a LEFTY was a curse, I found a support group for such people. (If you email me privately I will share it with you). They are still sort of "underground" and they still fear being Outed, and forced to go right.
I would hope that you would google "Famous Left-handed People" as I did , where you will find a WEALTH of information and a list of THOUSANDS of brilliant leftys who have changed our world.
Then copy the list and send it to every older bossy person that made you change and attach a hand written note that says, "Thanks alot! I COULD have been on this list!"
Just for starters, I'm listing a few past presidents (from the far left and right) who were leftys. Yeah, you could have been president!
Left-Handed U.S. Presidents
James A. Garfield
Harry S. Truman
George H.W. Bush
Hope your make a sharp left turn. Left is where all the creative brilliance in our universe lives.
(a lefty, of course!)
