As I find myself becoming older and more mature that the world around me is changing as well. Not just in the sense that everyone else’s perspective but my own. Going out in public had in the past been a huge fear for me. I thought that most people would treat me poorly or even badly. That random strangers would try to take advantage of me. Although it has happened n the past it wasn’t as often as I thought it would be. Now I’m not saying that everyone is perfect/kind but not everyone is out to get you.
Through working or going to school throughout the last couple of years has really opened my eyes to what is possible while being “out” in this world. That people are not what they appear to be (mostly, with exception) and not as nasty as some are portrayed in the social media/opinions of others. I have met some very kind people while being out and about in public.
Unfortunately, I have also found that there are many people who think that they are above someone due to being more “physically or mentally” stronger than someone that has some issues in those categories. What I do not enjoy about this is the way it makes someone feel imperfect or unworthy because they are not as able bodied. This being said, when other’s treat someone lesser because they’re not as able-bodied as them that they are somehow weaker or insignificant in comparison.
This is on of the reasons for starting my blog in the first place. To bring an understanding to the public society that being disabled is not a weakness but merely a slight disadvantage. That having a disability doesn’t mean that you are completely handicapped. There may be some ways but, in most cases, not all together.
I want to thank my readers for making it this far on my journey in life through my blog. I can’t believe that it has been over ten years since I had started my blog! I hope to be writing a lot more in the new years than the previous couple that I was not as active as I should of been. Hopefully my skills in writing will help me in my present and future courses in my post-secondary adventure! Thanks for reading and have a good one!
