I am left handed for writing and everything else except throwing a ball.
For some odd reason, when I first picked up a right-handed guitar I could not make progress fretting with my left hand. Since I followed the Beatles and Paul McCartney was left handed, it made sense to me to do the same, and then I started making progress. I did not have any problem fretting with my right hand and strumming with my left.
Years later, I tried to force myself to play right handed just as a test.
I tried for one hour and I felt like my brain had been turned upside down.
So I stopped that and kept playing left handed.
I have two left handed electric guitars and one bass. (see profle pic)
If you have a chance, try to play left handed guitars for a while and see how that works.
There are many left handed models nowadays.
Success in your guitar journey!
Life's always better with music ....
