I'm right-handed, should I use a left-handed stick?

However, I tried out a LH stick yesterday and I found slap shots to be MUCH easier, however stick handling was a bit more difficult. Overall, I'm much more comfortable with a RH stick, but I've heard that right-handed people are technically supposed to use LH sticks.
Should I go with the stick that's more comfortable (RH), or should I just try to get used to an LH stick, which may possibly benefit me in the long run?
Whatever is comfy with you. Strong hand on top-better stickhandling and slap shot. Strong hand on the bottom - better wrist shot.
