I am not sure how old I was when I came to realise that being responsible for myself was important. Looking back it hard everything to do with being left to emotionally work through a disability I didn’t know I had.
I know just how important that decision was for me to take the initiative, and take back control. I couldn’t have done or changed anything about my life, my writing and blog wouldn’t exist without knowing about my disability. I have never looked back.
In these times it has never been so important, we must all work together, we must take back control for ourselves, so that we remain safe. Being responsible for ourselves in a pandemic, means we help keep others safe too.
The virus doesn’t care whose lives it destroys, who lives or dies. Instead we must care and take control. Being responsible for ourselves means taking control.
I chose to take back control around my disability; now that I am living with my disability in the pandemic, I must continue to do the same, as we must all take control and be responsible for ourselves.
