I have a friend who is a left-handed person. This means that he uses his left hand most of the time: from writing, holding the spoon and fork, and handing over anything to other person. Sometimes, since there is only a few specially desk for left-handed person in the room, he is forced to use the desk for right-handed person. I wonder what he feels about it so I asked him.
He said, it is really tiring to use a desk not fit for him because his arms get easily tired, and sometimes, he bumps into other person’s arm while writing.
According to research, left-handed person is inclined more in holistic thinking mode. Which means that using the right hemisphere of their brain, they have an advantage in controling their musical, artistic, creativity, perceptional, and emotional aspects. In short, they can become exceptional artists, and musicians. But how can they improve such talents if let’s say most of the musical instruments available in the market are only for right-handed person? Isn’t this a hindrance for them?
It’s a good thing that nowadays, musical instrument companies consider a niche for left-handed people. If you are looking for extraordinary musical instrument like left handed acoustic guitar, check it out at GuitarCenter.
One day, when we were together on our way home, I asked him if he plays an acoustic guitar, then he asked me back the same question. I told him that I know how to strum some of the songs, and I’m still learning how to master it. When I asked him the same question again, he said that his father taught him how to play guitar but he didn’t pursue it because the guitar that they were using is designed for right-handed person. This may be a limitation for him before but not anymore!
I believe that whether we are born right-handed or left-handed, we shouldn’t be restricted by something that prevents us in doing what we are passionate about! (AAP)
