self acceptance goes along way

 When looking for something to post about recently I came across a post written by a young woman I was unable to comment on it as the site it was posted on required me to register. So I thought I would blog about it instead.

To give you the gist of what it said. She was relatively new to this relationship, the guy happened to have cerebral palsy and despite being active harboured a lot of anger and resentment about it. My heart goes out this young man who by circumstance was unable to follow his dream of enlisting in the military. His girlfriend wrote of how he was now finally starting to look at the pain of childhood and being left out or simply unable to do that which he wanted. I am trying to put those mothers, fathers, siblings, aunts, uncles, and friends who are able bodied into the mind set of this young man.

Try this, tie your dominate hand behind your back and now try to open a jar with your free hand that is a pretty good representation of what I suspect this man is feeling in terms of his frustrations, only magnified 1000000 times over

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

    Grr! Inaccessible websites!

    In the early days of Empower People Change Lives Erin Breedlove would put a “huh-challenge” very similar to the one you are giving us here.
