Life is Right or Left…

Go towards your Left.. Oh wait, I meant the other left.. whatever!!

Every single time when someone approach me for direction, I become super excited as if they are going to hand over a trophy if I tell right direction about going left. But to my no surprise, I end up goofing up Left with Right and vice versa. Thankfully my hands point to the right direction (thereby securing at-least the consolation prize :P)
After every fail attempt I laugh at myself and cherish similar incidents of past and console myself by saying “That’s OK even my dad used to do the same”.

It never occurred to me until today that this is unusual, which need a fix rather than ignoring or putting it on my father.
Thanks to my mentor for bringing this up. For the first time, I gave a thought about it and did some digging online keeping my fingers crossed to see if it is a psychological, neurological or IQ issue to say the least. Apparently, the left-right confusion or the phenomenon, is quite common and not a problem to be concerned about. There are various test available online to confirm where we stand with respect to this confusion. Though there is no remedy but by keeping calm, avoiding stress and most importantly by not thinking about the prize while assisting others with the direction will surely help in getting right direction about left.
