I am also a left-handed person. Also, I got many good compliments on this. One of them I listed too much is "Left-handers are very sharp and clever persons". I didn't believe this ever but this is the compliment that I heard frequently in my life.

Left-handed people actually have a huge advantage when it comes to sports like tennis.

When playing against somebody, you would normally assume that they are right side dominate so you will always aim for the weaker side that is the left.

Left-handed individuals aren't inherently disadvantaged; rather, they navigate a predominantly right-handed world. Embracing and accommodating diverse needs fosters inclusive. While some tools and setups favor right-handedness, societal awareness and adjustments can ensure equitable opportunities for everyone, regardless of their dominant hand.

When it comes to education, left-handed students do have a bigger learning curve. For kindergarten teachers it is hard to tell which is the dominate hand, as we tend to get students to use their right hand by default.

Outside of education like sports, left-handed have a huge advantage especially in single player games.
