Allow me to be perfectly clear: I am dyslexic and I have made the choice to reveal it to the world by not attempting to correct my texts in either Danish or English. Why? Because I have come to see my dyslexia as a gift.
I have learned to actively listen to what people are saying and not focus on ‘mistakes’. In this busy world we live in, everything goes so fast and we insist on ‘perfection’. So much that we get bogged down in our mistakes and forget to simply live.
Many people get hung up on my spelling errors and make comments about how “disruptive” they are. To me, that shows they are stuck in their own notions about ‘right and wrong’ and are missing the gift I am trying ti give them with my texts. Dyslexia is human. Wild animals need champions, regardless of their ‘shortcomings’. This is who I am, and I am proud of it.
