As a left hander I have faced lot of problems as my childhood onwards. What I have understood is people have negative attitude towards left side. Even we can see it in bible. It’s a reference about this in bible. Those who have read bible can relate this. To a certain extent this also influenced people. Now I am not going to that par of this topic.

I am left hander, I do my activities with my left hand. Throughout my childhood days I have faced lot of problems due to my left handedness. During my early school days the teachers tried to change my left handedness but it failed. My parents didn’t allowed me to change this. Slowly most people started accept my difference. But the most terrible thing I have faced is bullying. Still now I am facing this problem.

When people understand that I am left hander. The first thing they are asking is which hand I use in toilet to wash…. This was the most irritating question most people asked me. They are very curious to know about what I am doing in toilet and they take long lectures about this. They are not realizing they are interfering other’s personal matters. They are more interested in which I use in toilet. Society should respect individuals privacy.

    1. People have some have some negative attitude towards some thing. Lefthandedness is one of them. People are criticizing this without knowing the scientific truth of this. More than just criticizing, they are trying to bullying by asking questions like above mentioned. To me my parents was good support.

  2. Thats horrible, I have seen people making fun of left handies but not such offensive questions. This is too much of invasion of privacy. Please take stand for yourself, so no one dares to do it again.

    1. I still don’t understand why this people are interested other’s private matters. The first question they are asking is which hand you use to eat and next is goes which hand we use in toilet. This people are interfering other’s private matters. They really insulting that specific person.

    2. The most insulting thing is they are interested what a person is doing privately… some people take classes on this thing and openly. I hate this kind of people

  3. I don’t know why, but in most religions being left-handed is associated to the evil. I guess this is why for ages some tried to change it in early childhood. Luckily, nowadays, I believe that there is less concern about being left-handed ?

  4. I always appreciate left-handers for their handwriting are always neat, clean, beautiful🙂 I have a lot of friends who are left-handers and they are very good… I have my brother also who is a left-hander… And I also practice myself with my left hand.😉 my friend you are precious and gifted… I say kindly that, Left hand in the sacred scripture does not always says negative…remember Jesus said, “do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing”…if your right-hand does something wrong… Never let also your left hand do wrong… What I say is… Be positive of the gifts that God gave you.
