  1. Just because we have to deal with things like cerebral palsy or mental health issues doesn’t define who we are but simply what our issues are.

    There are just still so many stigmas attached to disabilities that we have to overcome and I’m not hundred percent of why, when it isn’t like we chose to have these conditions, like people seem to think.

    It isn’t like people who have things like cerebral palsy can just get over it. They don’t tell people with cancer or diabetes to do that, so why us?

    Maybe if others spent less time putting labels on people and instead treated us like human beings, then we could all just get along and the world would be a much better place.

    1. Thanks Randy. Yes, the only ones who can define us are us, but that doesn’t stop others defining us.

      But where others come in with compassion and empathy although they can never know what we deal with, they can empathise and help us with what we have to deal with.

      I agree with you when you say, ‘maybe if others spent less time putting labels on us and instead treated us like human beings.’ Society tends to have a habit of doing that.

  2. We are all individuals and should not be defined by how we look but how we behave.

    We have created a world so reliant on prejudice based on appearance that our actions go unanswered.

    1. Thank you. The irony is that we are defined by how we look and how we behave.

      The reason why our actions go unanswered is because we’re not listening and too busy ignoring our lessons.
