Have you ever felt the need to belong? A few days ago, I posted an article to my twitter and Facebook accounts it was written by the Huffington Post. The article, spoke of 10 things that people with disabilities should be regularly told. I was pleasantly surprised by what I read, and this is why I am inspired to write this post. As much as the top 10 list was focused on persons with disabilities, I feel that the core message was truly something that everybody needs to hear regularly, regardless of whether they have a disability or not.
I Think It Is Safe to Say, That We As Humans Have the Need to Belong.
I think as human beings, we have an intrinsic need to belong. And often we struggle when things appear different than what we are used to. I don’t think that there should have been a need to write the type of post that the Huffington Post wrote because it shouldn’t matter whether you have a disability or not, the things written in that post are what we all need to hear regularly. But I think, that they were right, people with disabilities in our society today sadly do need to hear those things, and perhaps more often than the norm. I know from my own life experience that having a physical disability has sometimes left me feeling socially invisible.
I applaud the Huffington Post, for this gentle reminder. It is something we all needed to hear because we all need to feel like we belong!
