I am always amazed why there are people that are lefdt handed. During highschool days, i always love to see left handed classmates doing board works and wonder how did it happen to them. In our family, no one is left handed. I gues for every 15 people, there would be 1. Anyway, how did it really happen?

I also didn't know how it happened. But i think it's just innate, you know, being born with it.. In our family, i have a sister who was left handed when she was a kid. When i throw something at her, she uses her left hand to catch something. When she eats, she handles the spoon by her left hand. She draws, writes, sews, all by her left hand. BUT my mom, knowing about her being left-handed, always scolds/reprimands my sister everytime she is seen using her left hand... That is why, as she grew old, she already shifted to being right-handed.. but she also is still good in using her left hand. Either way, whether left or right, she does it good. Hehehe.

I am left-handed. I am so because God created me that way, just as He created you right-handed. Although I use my left hand for some things like holding a sports racquet or paintbrush, throwing a ball, using the scissors, drawing, etc. I am right-handed when it comes to writing, shooting with a rifle, and eating with forks and spoon. I can also write with my left hand, but it is not as good as my right. Some people call me ambidextrous. I take that as a compliment. I have encountered no problems though with normal daily life activities as a left-hander.
