Confession time. I had a lisp for most of my childhood. It took three years of speech therapy to break my habit. It was really hard, but my teacher made it very clear that I would never be taken seriously if I kept my lisp.
Twelve years later and now I´m being ordered to lisp. I am still caught off guard hearing so many people speaking with lisps. I can hear my old speech teacher saying ¨they´ll never get jobs with those lisps.¨ A part of me is afraid to get comfortable lisping again. What if I can´t stop?
Here´s my HeSo lesson I´m taking away from this. It´s a stretch, but bear with me. People are always going to try and change you. You´re never perfect enough. But sometimes what you have been told is a flaw, might be considered attractive to someone else. Appreciate your excentricities. Now say that with a lisp!
