Don"t label me stupid!

Most of my life I have been labeled as stupid! I have only realised in the last few years I am not! I always knew I had some sort of learning problem but was never really given any suporrt! just told I was stupid! I didn"t do great at school! but after I left I managed to get a BETC, City & guilds & a NVQ 2., without any help! I was told I at dixleya at 27 when I was due to start a NVQ 3 I got help! but I was unable to complete the course coz I lost my Job :( Even some of my own family tell me I am Stupid! If you think you have disxyla get help! & rember you are NOT stupid! It may take you longer to achive things, Don"t let anyone tell you otherwise.

I know exactly how that feels. For a long time I didn't know why everything was so hard for me and that people around me just found it easy. I used to feel stupid and useless and I still feel like this sometimes.

Even though it can be hard to think nice things about yourself just remember that everyone is special and super smart and that you should embrace your success and use them for future motivation.

Hope this helped

Love yourselfxxx
