HomeinspirationThe Hidden Challenge For People With Different Learning Styles

One of the most toxic things that people who have different learning styles must cope with is the constant sense of limitation. In the United States, we’re classified as disabled, and while there may be some things that are hard for us, there are almost always ways around the challenges.

Sure, there are some things I can’t do, like do more than the most basic of arithmetic in my head or memorize trivia, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t things I can do.  Our culture is good at concentrating on only negative things instead of nurturing positive things. That goes for learning differences, too.

It takes a huge amount of energy to reprogram self-defeating thoughts, but it is possible. We all have things we’re good at, and with enough creativity, we can use those things to achieve the things we’re bad at.
