Knowing you're not alone does help
It helps to know that you are not the only one who stutters. If you were the only one in the world who stuttered, you would be more likely to try to hide your stuttering. Hiding or covering up your stuttering does not allow you to really enjoy life and be yourself. When you try to hide the fact that you stutter, you will be apt to stutter more. People who stutter have become movie stars, writers, basketball players, golfers, baseball players, football players, attorneys, photographers, singers, teachers, senators, governors, and have had other occupations. Just because you stutter doesn't mean that you have to choose a non-speaking career. You can do anything you want.
