Free from comparison - Wan Yi

A little background about my family. I grew up in a family of 5 with two sisters who both have impaired hearing. One had impaired hearing from birth while the other suffered a high fever and had impaired hearing as a result.

That meant that communicating with them was very difficult and I even had to pick up sign language in order to understand them. However, I always felt outcast-ed as I couldn’t understand what my two sisters were saying despite learning sign language. I felt lonely and hurt and no one knew that I was going through this.




At home, my parents also compared me
