In life people must pass through a lot of circumstances to accomplish wants and desires; challenges will always be in the way, but they are not a reason to stop and quit dreaming. There are many obstacles when trying to solve a difficulty such as, languages or speech disorders can make any circumstance even more difficult, something as little as stuttering can make people feel afraid of who they are, and in addition, make them feel defeated in some cases. That is why people with this kind of difficulty must keep fighting to show others that despite any adversity, they are able to endure it and make big things. However, stuttering on daily life could be affected by how the person and others react to the disorder.
