    I sense.

    I sense because I did not have any help when I was growing up, I had to learn it myself. That's the only excuse I can think of. I felt retarded when I envied others intelligence knowledge and education. I am late in life to begin again, but change is always going to happen regardless of the situation. I want to spell the word regard (reguard), and I will never know why. I ask myself why I do this and argue about writing that's out of my style. Because I had no one to help me understand anything I was interested in.

    I feel I lived in another time and things change except for being hardheaded and envious of what I missed in my life. Thanks for listing. Edit this.

    Re: I sense.

    I sense realise (that), because I did not have any help when I was growing up, I had have to learn things myself.

    It is never late to learn. Learning is a lifelong process. Everyone learns at his/her own pace; the feeling of envy should not come into the picture. The good thing is, at this stage of your life, you do not have deadlines to meet and exams to sit, unlike the younger generations. This itself, is something enviable.

    Re: I sense.

    I sense realize that I had. Why are these words wrong to use? Cannot the writer use his own words? We do no live in a perfect world. Each writer has there own voice? Why are these words non usable as ones voice?

    Re: I sense.

    The words things others are words I chose to use because they seem to explain the sentence my way. Does not each writer have their voice in their writing? Now I see where listing and please edit are wrong. Are the edited words writer correct like politically correct?

    You are absolutely free to use whichever words you want. However, you chose to join this forum and what we do on this forum is correct/improve people's writing. Usually, that is what they want us to do and that is what we have been doing to all your posts. If you don't want our corrections or suggestions, why did you join?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
