If I Didn't Stutter

Whenever someone asks me if I would take a magic pill to eliminate my stutter, my response is 90 percent no. The reasons are:

I wouldn’t have some of my life experiences.

I wouldn’t be part of a great and inspiring community.

I wouldn’t be as empathetic and compassionate.

I would be missing out on some great life lessons.

I wouldn’t have discovered writing as a means of expressing myself.

I wouldn’t be as good of a listener as I am.

I wouldn’t be me.
