Nothing in my life was ever going to change unless I changed and that’s pretty much how things worked out. If there are problems around our parents that won’t change until they choose to change. It’s the children who must change.
We will always live the life we live unless we understand ‘the life thing.’ The nature of how we are and how we think is responsible, but as my story shows there is a way around that. I could have simply continued to fall into line, but instead I chose to work through each experience so that I could see the bigger picture.
Would I change ‘My Story’ or my life? Would I have wanted to have come into my life if someone had have asked me first and I’d had a chance to go away and think about it, knowing what I would have to live and work through? Knowing what I do now with my website and what I have achieved through, then yes.
We are who we are because of our experiences. It helps to have a loving close-knit family. Some of us are lucky that way. I would have loved a balance at least. The scales were tipped too far the other way. And if like me you believe there is a reason for your life, then The CP Diary is my reason. I couldn’t do what I do without my disability or my experiences.
But I do think those responsible for what I’ve had to deal with must take responsibility. On my website, I have documented what has happened to me over the years, none of which is my responsibility.
But I will take responsibility for what’s mine.
