Improved ‘Positives of Dyspraxia’ Chart
Dyspraxia does have its positive points. After all, it is one of the reasons why I started this blog in the first place. The positive points are overshadowed by the stigma that comes with the territory of a label. It is these positives and negatives that make us unique people with interesting abilities and mindsets. A while back I created a chart to demonstrate some of the key positive attributes those with Dyspraxia can have. As I create visual aids for my blog I get more ideas that I can use to update my older ones. I’ve added new key attributes to the ‘Positives of Dyspraxia’ chart and uploaded it here, feel free to share it!
Honestly, I’m still not truly satisfied with it and I expect I’ll add to it at a later date but for the time it is a slight improvement on what I had before. Incidentally, if you think I have missed off an important attribute then please let me know and you may see it in the next update.
For those who are not aware, I have a page dedicated to the positives where I go into more depth. You’ll find it here: dyspraxicfantastic.com/the-positives/
The Positive Attributes vs. The Negative Attributes:
Do the Positives outweigh the Negatives?
There is no true or easy answer to this question. Every person that faces a double-edged sword, like with Dyspraxia, will have different outlooks and opinions. To make matters even more complicated these viewpoints can change on a daily basis, so some days we can feel empowered and enjoy the positives we have and then on other days feel the negatives plague us to no end.
In the grand scheme of things, no one is perfect and we all have our own burdens. If my worst character trait is being clumsy, getting lost easily (both literally and figuratively), and having strong emotions then I think I’m doing alright. Sure, my low moments can hit really, really hard to the point where I feel that I’m falling into a pit and dragging myself out is a hard task.
With everything said and done, there are more negatives than positives, which this blog reflects. (Most pages are dedicated to the negatives and how to handle the difficulties, there are a few sprinkling of positives if you seek them out). The negatives and positives combined have made me who I am today, and It’s why I wouldn’t want my Dyspraxia cured even if the positives were kept. There are some people who think the same but other people would happily have it cured. There isn’t a cure at the moment nor the foreseeable future. Therefore, trying to look on the bright side and concentrating on the positives helps take the edge off the Dyspraxia. It’s a challenge to find those positives but keep looking. Eventually, you’ll find that something that ignites the passion within. Once you find it, stick with it!
See you next post!
Lately, my positivity has been at an all-time high, which is why my blog is buzzing with activity. There are a couple of posts in the pipeline that’ll I like to complete and upload over the next few weeks. I know I’m going to run out of steam at some point, it is inevitable after all. So after my current ideas have been uploaded I’m going to take a short break until my next influx of energy. It’ll give my batteries a chance to recharge and give some thinking time to new ideas. My blog has been an amazing distraction these past few weeks but there are upcoming events that need my attention. I’ll still be around to answer questions and hear your thoughts, so feel free to send them my way.
Thanks for reading and see you next time!
