When someone has a personal challenge, it makes it difficult at times to achieve success. It is not always easy for me to achieve success in life because I have a mild form of autism known as Asperger’s Syndrome. Asperger’s Syndrome affects many areas of my life.
In this article, I will share with you some of the challenges that I have faced in my life and how I have overcome them.
I am very passionate about education and psychology. I have always been fascinated by the way people learn and interact with each other. When I was in high school, I was very interested in studying human behavior. I was also interested in helping people overcome personal challenges.
One of the biggest challenges that I have faced in my life is social interaction. I have always had difficulty interacting with others. I am often awkward and uncomfortable in social situations. This has made it difficult for me to make friends and build relationships.
I have overcome this challenge by studying social interaction and learning how to interact with others. I have also sought out counseling and therapy to help me overcome my social anxiety. I am now much more confident in social situations and I have made many friends.
I am also passionate about writing. I have always loved writing stories and articles. However, I have faced the challenge of dyslexia. This learning disability has made it difficult for me to read and write.
I have overcome this challenge by working hard and seeking help when I need it. I have also learned to use assistive technology, such as text-to-speech software, which has helped me greatly. I am now a successful writer and I have had many of my articles published.
I believe that everyone has the ability to overcome personal challenges. It is not always easy, but it is possible. If you are facing a personal challenge, I encourage you to seek out resources and support. There are many people who want to help you succeed. With dedication and hard work, you can overcome any challenge.
To begin, it hampers my learning and makes academic success difficult. Next, Asperger’s impedes social understanding, making job performance impossible. In addition, this condition affects one’s capacity to interact with people in personal relationships. I believe that I have overcome several of the challenges inherent with my condition and that I have already succeeded in many aspects of my life.
Despite the challenges that Asperger’s syndrome presents, I have overcome many difficulties and achieved success in many areas of my life. My educational background is in psychology and counseling, which has given me the ability to understand my disability and how to work with it. I have also been able to use my knowledge to help others who are struggling with similar issues. In addition, I have developed strong interpersonal skills that have allowed me to build positive relationships with others. These skills have been invaluable in both my personal and professional life.
I believe that anyone can achieve success in spite of any challenges they may face. It is important to remember that everyone has different strengths and weaknesses. We all face challenges in life, but it is how we overcome them that defines us. I am proof that even someone with a disability can achieve great things if they set their mind to it.
One of the challenges for me as an Aspie is learning. Despite my photographic memory and strong mathematical talents, abstract concepts are tough for me to grasp. At the age of three, I taught myself to read; however, I frequently didn’t comprehend what I was reading. The second reason why writing was difficult for me was that it required two steps: (1) recognizing an idea or concept; and (2) expressing it in words or symbols.
Secondly, I had trouble organizing my thoughts on paper. My essays were often disorganized and hard to follow.
I was mainstreamed in the second grade, but by high school, I was in all special education classes. In spite of this, I graduated with honors. After graduation, I attended a community college where I did very well. Then, I transferred to a four-year university where again I did well. But, by my junior year, the demands of school became too much and I withdrew.
I have now found a way to overcome my challenges and continue my education through online courses. The key for me has been working one-on-one with a tutor who understands my condition. My tutor helps me to stay organized and to understand the material. I am now taking courses that interest me and that I am enjoying.
While there are challenges, Asperger’s Syndrome does not have to be a roadblock to success. With hard work and understanding, people with Asperger’s can overcome their challenges and reach their goals.
Second, because Asperger’s Syndrome affects the ability to communicate ideas, expressing thoughts has been a difficulty. I comprehend the facts in a story but frequently lose sight of the “big idea.” Despite my learning difficulties, I graduated from high school in the top fifteen percent of my class and was inducted into National Honor Society and received the John and Abigail Adams Scholarship for Advanced & Proficient MCAS scores.
I also was captain of my high school’s co-ed cheerleading squad. So, I have beaten the odds and achieved what some would say is impossible.
Now that I am in college, I find myself once again having to overcome personal challenges. I take five classes instead of the usual four because I want to catch up and graduate with my class. My sensory issues are still a problem. The fluorescent lights in our classroom give me headaches, and the constant noise from the air conditioner makes it hard to concentrate. However, I have found ways to cope with these issues. I sit in the front of the room so that I am not as distracted by the lights, and I wear earplugs to help block out the noise from the air conditioner.
I have also had to find ways to deal with my social anxiety. In high school, I was able to avoid social situations by staying home and doing my homework or hanging out with my close friends. But in college, there are so many things going on all the time that it is impossible to avoid social situations altogether. So, I have had to find ways to deal with my anxiety. I have found that participating in small group activities and attending events with friends helps me to feel more comfortable in social situations.
