This post comes from a post that I read over on monkey boy’s blog earlier this week. The comment I wrote over there was not put there to create a dramatic feeling, it was the truth. The words described in vivid imagery for both of us, left me speechless, and my roommate in tears.
Jo monkey’s mom wrote about how a raring to go driver was honking at her son. Her son was trying to cross a parking lot as quickly yet safely as he could. When they did get safely across the lot, Monkey asked Jo in tears what he should have done differently.
I recognize the kindness of others, whose efforts to help sometimes can be overdone. I also know that the very meaning of cerebral palsy should be that things are done differently. And admittedly differently at times can mean at a slower speed then one’s peers.
To monkey my point is do your best. Not everyone is going to like what you do or how fast or slow you take to do it. I have realized that I am probably going to be slower than most to do things. The things that come easily and probably naturally to others, most likely will not be as natural for me. Those very same things will and often take us more physical efforts and in turn more time.
