My disability was never given the time of day, talked about or aired as a child, suffice to say that’s how it has stayed, until I started my blog. The hard part for me was having to exist in an environment where my life around my disability stayed underground.
Without me keeping my experiences alive through my blog, my disability would never have been mentioned in my lifetime. It’s clear it was to be a secret and that I was never supposed to know.
Although my thoughts and feelings haven’t changed, I am looking at other people’s inabilities to deal with and be responsible around what I had to deal with. I’m looking at arrogance, an arrogance that doesn’t match with what’s known, they simply choose to ignore it.
It’s hard not to hate intellectual arrogance, when the basis of such arrogance becomes outright ignorance. Those with an intellectual arrogance have a ‘my way or the highway attitude’ since their views are supposedly the right or the only way to think, but we all know that’s not true.
It’s how they live their lives. What others think is immaterial to them.
