Where others have passed their judgment on us, they need to stop judging and we need to get on with our lives.
Being born with a disability adds to other people’s opinions and judgments on how we will fare, but it’s not the sole reason. Although it’s not always our intention to prove our critics wrong, it helps when we can.
Even with our critics, with or without a disability, we may still have numerous challenges, but it’s not the challenges that are the problem, it’s how we solve our challenges, but it doesn’t stop others judging us.
It’s our challenges that builds resilience and resourcefulness and together they make us stronger. But no matter who judges, it’s our job to prove them wrong.
