Seeing the World in Subtitles

Many people do not realize that although we all have different learning styles, we also have different views of experiencing our every day world.

Ten years ago, I learned that I think differently than ANYONE I know; I see subtitles for everything…EVERYTHING.

When I speak and when anyone else speaks, I see the words in my head.  Yep. Just like subtitles.

So when I am asked to a get-together that I know will be very loud, I secretly dread it. I am a hermit anyways, but add in this fun fact and it takes it to a different level.

When everyone is talking at once, I truly cannot hear what people are saying, because I am seeing everyone’s words and the letters are getting all screwed up in my head. It sounds strange to you, but it sounds strange to me that my friends and family do not see words. I don’t understand how they can understand what someone says if they cannot read it also. I listen and read…everything.

imgres-1I was asked recently if I wrote The Girl Who Saw Words so that I will be accepted. I was shocked, because that never crossed my mind. Acceptance? NO!

I wrote this book for many different reasons:

  •  It is important to know that there are many different ways of thinking and seeing the world.
  • It is important to appreciate and celebrate that we are all unique in our own way.
  • It is important to show our children that it is ok to be different. It is a good thing, not something to be ashamed of because we are all different. That is what makes the world so beautiful.
  • I want my son and other children to know that it is ok if you do not fit in.
  • It is more than ok to celebrate your own uniqueness!
  • Most importantly, be proud of you are and never try to hide yourself from others. ❤
