For years I struggled in school and even regular conversations. Forming a proper response takes time and I disregard sharing what comes to my mind instantly.
In most cases, it hasn't been an issue to step back and give things some thought. Hitting the brakes on a crossroad until having a proper overview of the situation, however, does not work. Hence, it can become a hindrance in situations where quick reactions are necessary.
In any way, reading this article gave me a sense of comfort, and made me feel understood. It's always great to know you're not alone.
“How slowly or quickly you think is not an accurate measurement of your intelligence. Slow thinking is more deliberate and less emotional.”
