Through Hard Talk on BBC featuring Henry Winkler talking about dyslexia, I ended up watching Hard Talk with Brian May, which was so, very super inspiring!!!
At 6:40 “No, I don’t go for money. No, you wouldn’t. Why would you? If you don’t do it because you love it, it would have died quickly, because pople would have realized.”
At 9:13 “Yeah, I’ve got really, really depressed. I’ve got really depressed a couple of times in my life. If you are really depressed, you’d cut both your legs off to get rid of that feeling. Funny thing is, it can be the making of you. If you manage toÂ crawl your way out of thatÂ hole, you have to rebuild. It’s a strange thing to say, but I think I am better for it.”
Being dyslexic means automatic,Â unimaginable difficulty in your life that non-dyslexic people would not experience.Â Non-maliciousÂ and maliciousÂ “God, you ARE stupid!” expression is hurled at you often. You’ve got to learn to live with feelingÂ of inferiority, no matter how successful you become. This inevitably leads to feeling of depression in a different degree. It’s not just dyslexic people whoÂ haveÂ difficulty in life.Â If you drew uncaring parents,Â were born inÂ a country in war,Â wereÂ raped,Â orÂ whatever, you will have “toÂ crawl your wayÂ out of that hole”Â to come out okay, and going through it all makesÂ you strong, “make youÂ better for it” as Brian May describes.
