Limitation or a gift?

Written by a 15 year old who has dyslexia

Computer Game: Swords and Sandals 2

So, in this game, you are allocated with 9 skill points that you distribute to the different attributes of your choice. You may decide to put all 9 points into ‘Strength’ which would mean you would be very strong, but, you would have not enough points in; ‘Agility’ so you wouldn’t be able to move fast enough; ‘Vitality’ so you wouldn’t have much energy; ‘Stamina’ meaning not being able to go long enough without having to sleep. So this game needs you to distribute the skill points evenly throughout the game to win your battles.


Relating this to real life
The way I like to think about it is that, before we are born we are given our 9 skill points and we have them randomly chosen to be put in attributes. Something like Dyslexia could be thought as not putting any skill points in Spelling ability but using those points to put into Entrepreneurial skill. The reason why I like to think of our ability like this is because it makes everyone have equal ‘Skill points’ and someone who is better at spelling than me, would struggle more at maths than I do. This helps to show that with things like dyslexia comes the gifts as well.
