    Does everyone despise using pens

    or pencils and getting that mark on your hand. It's like a mark so people know who we lefties are.

    I am left handed and can't help it.

    I was and am still told that left handed people are the only ones in their right mind as a joke. I love being left handed because that is what makes me different.

    I am left handed and I like it.

    I do always everything better left and I am the only lefty in my family. But I can also write with my right hand. It's not easy but hey it's possible and I have to be more concentrated. :p The best thing is when people (you've known for many years) ask you "Amira! woow! Are you...

    I sometimes wish I was right handed,

    then I wouldn't have to worry about writing and getting ink smeared all over the paper or my hand wouldn't have ink on it from the smearing, but I well

    Actually, I do different things with different

    hands. For instance, in baseball I am completely right handed. Tennis, better with left hand. Basketball, dribble best with left hand but shot best right handed. I now write only with my left hand but alternated hands until 3rd grade. Shoot guns left handed. Football, can throw...

    The struggle is real.

    The whole language thing is against us lefties because whenever we write, whether we use a pencil or a pen, it gets all over the side of our hand. As lefties, we went through school with that stupid spiral in our spiral notebooks getting in our way. And don't even get me...

    left handed, until we committed our first sin, then we become right handed."

    Lefty. Lefty. I love it

    but I most likely hate it. I can't use a knife the right way, but I'm still learning. :) the struggles of being left handed, the desk, the scissors, and etc. but it's not like I can change it.

    The world is not made

    for us lefty's! Writing on a paper pad with an ink pen leads to disaster of the smudging kind and a dirty inky splodge on the outside of your palm leading from the pinky down to your wrist. Such a cruel world! Also back when you were at Primary school (or Elementary school to...

    I think being left handed is sooo cool!

    Especially the fact left handed is more rare than right handed! I'm the only one left handed in my family! How cool is that?

    1.) Babies, when placed on their tummies,

    turn their head left if they are lefties, and right if they're righties 2.) Christianity, Judaism and Islam consider left handedness to be related to the devil somehow. Latin translation of the word 'left' is 'sinister'. Left handed in German means 'awkward'. In fact, the...

    The world is set up for right handed people.

    .. We lefties have to learn to fit in, consequently, We are usually very good problem solvers... I once worked in an Engineering group of 33 people, 12 were left handed. I love being left handed!

    I remember when I was in elementary school.

    .. Some kids teased me saying the left hand was the hand of the Devil. Ah ha ha ha! They would say I was a demon or damned. They would try to make me become a right handed, but hell, you've got to admit that a right handed has such a hard technique to hold the pencil in their...
