    I HAVE to be a lefty because I had a stroke in uteral when I was born and the left side of my brain was damaged and that effected my whole right side of my body, so now I have a right hand delay

                    I use my left hand to write. But for other stuffs, I can use either of my hand like playing badminton.

                          I all comes to the point of efficiency. Mankind focuses on efficiency. So they are making new and innovative tools that can help us with everything. Among them there are tools that require hands. But those tools are not efficient for both hands. Not all the tools that is. Pen can be used by both hands but a can opener is to be used by only right hand. Its inefficient for people to make tools both for right and left. So most of the tools are for right hand use. And as we are used to using these right handed tools we become right handed ourselves. To support my theory I can give an example of playing soccer/football. There are a lot of left footed player. Tell me what you guys think.

                            I think it’s funny when someone says “you’re left handed?!!?”
                            But then I really mess em up because I play guitar right handed.

                                                "WOOWW You're left-handed??!!" and "That means you're smarter than everyone!!" Are the two most repeated questions I've been asked in my life. I just want to sigh when I hear someone ask me if I'm left-handed. It's not something I think about all the time, it's just the way it is.🤷🏽‍♀️

                                                  Who else writes with your left hand but not with your right, uses your right hand for sports and right foot for Soccer and can use scissors and one hand type with either hand?
                                                  Anyone? I’m not ambi as I cannot write with my right hand

                                                        A friend I’ve known for over 6 years just realized I was left handed....I almost threw my hands (no pun intended) ...

                                                          People told me left handed people are smarter and have better hand writing. I’m here, with my crappy handwriting (no kidding, my friend even told me she didn’t like my handwriting) and my horrible grades (my right handed friends always get 100s and I get like b’s and c’s.) I just don’t understand where this whole assumption came from. People say left handed people think the other way as to right handed people, or stuff like that. I mean, they could be silly legends or the coincidental truth that famous celebrities are left handed, but I guess left handed people to me are just left handed .-.
