Its like an alien having been handed a knife and fork.
Yes I can use them, just. However I look on many occasions like an alien who had just been handed a knife and fork. Chopsticks were for a long time alien to me, I just could not get to grips with them.
Over time I have got better but I still struggle.
I know I can ask for a knife and fork, but it is part of the experience and culture and it has taken me a long time to be able to use them. Maybe I am special and nobody else struggles, but I just wish as a kid I learnt as some point to eat with them. It would have made my life a bit easier.
