Reality Of Stammering Today
In a very busy and developing world today where everyone is busy with their own work and gaining success there are some people I mean very few mainly 15% of the people in this world suffer from a depressing disease called STAMMERING. It is also called SHUTTERING.
People who shutter usually don’t like social gatherings and they are always silent. They like loneliness as they fear to face people due to shuttering. They are not able to speak a sentence or a word clearly. They get tensed when they are about to speak in public or to strangers. Each and every work for them will be a burden. Going to the office and speaking with colleagues, managers, clients, attending phone calls, ordering things from online, public speaking, lectures, debates, presentations, telling their name or biography, Reading books loudly, etc each and everything will become challenging to them. They fight every day with themselves to improve their speech and hide from people and love to stay alone with no one around. They usually go into depression after some time as they will not have any friends, family to support them.
Stammering is a speech disorder in which a person finds difficulty in saying a word, a sentence, or speech. They cant speak FLUENTLY. This is usually seen in children from age 3 to 5 when they are trying to learn new words and trying to speak fluently. It usually goes away after some time. But in some children, it may last longer and will be there lifelong.
Some people develop stammering in ADULTHOOD due to some tragic situations like:-
- Fear and Anxiety.
- Brain disease.
- Continuously being bullied.
- Love Failure.
It’s very important to know about this speech disorder and help people who are going through this. Because LOVE and SUPPORT are two strong pillars that will help every human being to fight anything. We are social beings and we need each other for everything. A man or a woman or even a child cannot stay here on this planet all alone though they have their pets, animals, or luxuries around.
