Realizing how much time it takes me to do things that others take for granted it would have make sense for people around me to help. Sometimes for speed reasons, I was helped other times I was left to my own devices.
A reader and parent of a toddler with cp asked if i had any advice. I don’t particularly like giving advice as I realize that my abilities and the abilities may be vastly different. that being said, her question about advice reminded me of a story.
a story of independence: learning to put on my own coat
One day when I was little I decided that I want to go run errands with mom. Being that she was in a rush decided that she would rather leave me at home. But I decided that I wasn’t having it that way, and she found me sitting by the door with my coat on. A skill, that up until that moment my family was unaware that I was able to do independently. Over the years I have found myself surprised at my own abilities and sense and independence.
