Judging and Misconceptions
For a while I’ve been holding my tongue about we, as a collective society, are so quick to judge someone or groups of people for things they choose or have no choice over. We all look different, have different faiths or belong to a religion, living with illnesses which are either present or naked to the eye.
From what I’ve experienced with living with Cerebral Palsy and since my pain has become a daily thing is some people love to judge with what I’m doing with my life. I’ve had to make decisions to stop doing things, and they weren’t easy decisions. Some people may believe I’ve become slack because most days I sit in front of my computer, do a little bit of Facebook, chat to friends and family, listen to an audiobook and after lunch watch Netflix. I wish my life was completely different at the moment. I wish I could visit friends and family, but the truth is I don’t have the energy and most importantly I don’t wanna risk a nerve episode (aka pain). So I’m HAPPY with what I do, even though it’s nothing really.
People are so quick to judge these days. Ultimately peoples’ lives are theirs and if they aren’t hurting you or causing you harm, leave them alone. Life is a gift and people with disabilities or illnesses know this fully.
