adults means a better sense of relating to my world




I have written a lot about my childhood and self-acceptance but I have also noted that the experiences of my life are shaped by how I have grown up relating differently to the world around me or at least this is my perception.

relating to adults better than my peers

The reality of my life as a child was that far more comfortable relating to the adults in my world. I think this is because adults were far more willing to take the time to listen to me and unlike children they tended to be more patient with the fact that I physically move slower than the other kids.

with age came understanding

I am happy to say I feel that with age feel like I have gained more friends. Not so much new friends, actually it is people I have known for years but we have become closer. I can’t even begin to spectulate as what brought us closer except to say perhaps age and maturity for all parties involved

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.

  1. Yep! I too related much more to adults growing up… For the same reasons!

  2. In high school I remember feeling more comfortable around adults than my classmates. My reasoning came to clearly defined roles. Rules for interacting with teachers and who else remained pretty simple. Meanwhile peer interaction didn’t fall under those same rules.

    Hi Laura,
    I too relate to your post. I tend to gravitate more to adults but I’m better now because I attend groups for young people and they’ve helped me to blossom. I thank god for that peer interaction every day.
    Keep blogging/video blogging cause you rock! Your blog is such a comfort. I’m reading a book called “From Where I Sit” written by a young woman with CP. It has been a comfort for me because I don’t feel so alone. If you could please pass it on it might be a comfort to someone else. Thank you.
