Jennifer Aniston: A survivor of Dyslexia!


How often we judge and pass the verdict on people and leave them nothing except the darkness of a dead soul and a mind of a dead inhumane creature? How easily we keep names and are always ready to pull people back in order to move forward? How often we stay far off people with mental illness, depression or dyslexia without understanding that it is they who need our support the most?

Well, coming back to the part where the above given reference hasn’t occurred in an exact way it is mentioned above. We are happy and blessed enough to be living in a world where people like Jennifer Aniston are there to inspire our lives and contribute in a great manner to make up a society to live in.

Recently, Jennifer chose social media to share her story of being a survivor of ‘Dyslexia’ where she told that how she actually desired for a profession which actually doesn’t sit with the problem she had all her life. Dyslexia also known as reading disorder is known for the trouble people get with reading despite having normal intelligence. The effect varies from different people to varying degrees. The issues may include difficulties in spelling words, reading quickly, writing words, “sounding out” words in the head, pronouncing words when reading aloud and understanding what one reads. When someone who previously could read loses their ability, it is known as alexia. The difficulties are involuntary and people with this disorder have a normal desire to learn.

Here’s what she had to share Most people know me but not my story. All my life I have struggled with dyslexia. When I told people I wanted to become an actress, they laughed at me because most of acting deals with reading. This was a pivotal moment for me. It could have let what people were saying define me or force me to pull myself up by the boot straps and believe in myself. I took a deep breath and decided to believe in myself. Today, I have won over 33 awards. 🙂 When someone tells you, you can’t do something; prove them wrong. If you believe in yourself, anything is possible. Share to encourage someone.”
