We force others to adapt. It’s not just around disabilities, but in other walks of life too where we’re expected to fit in. Society, people’s cultures, social change are all part of this scenario. We expect others to conform, adapt to the norm.
Life is hard, even harder when we’re expected to run with things and physically, mentally and emotionally, we know we can’t.
There’s something we’re having to transition to and that is our struggle. With a disability everything it’s much harder. Without a disability, the stability we create for ourselves, gives us security, which makes us feel more at ease.
When we force others to adapt and they’re dealing with a disability, it may mean we’re uncertain on how to play things, or it could be just something that suits us, because that way we don’t have to come out of our comfort zone to help them.
Around a disability, where others expect us to adapt, they’re sending out the message they care about themselves more.
