What has been my biggest struggle so far?

Updated: Mar 12, 2021

From herein, you are in for a real treat. Until now, I've never really opened up to anyone, well except to my family and a few close friends after a few jugs of beer (Dutch courage). So here goes nothing, my biggest struggle up until now has been my speech impediment, I wouldn't say I like it, and I don't want to admit this, but sometimes it affects me mentally, there have been times I feel that I've been ignored and looked down upon because of it. I don't know if some people think that I'm mentally inadequate because my speech is not normal. Yes, I was born with a brain injury. Still, I don't class myself as special needs. I've to lead a perfectly normal life up until now regarding education, sitting my GCSE Exams, and passing one or two of them, leading me to where I am now and becoming a fully published author, songwriter and now, a blogger.

I know that I may seem to be coming across a little abrupt in this post. Still, I feel now is the time to get this issue off my chest purely from a personal point of view, and most importantly, from an educational angle. Remember, having cerebral palsy and a speech impediment may give me a bit of a disadvantage physically, but as with personality and vocationally, I'm pretty quick, have done, and always continue to be the best person I can be.

Best wishes,
