I was at a writing course this morning. The teacher said something to the effect to me that at first she did not know how to handle me because of my handicap. This was a kind and honest comment. Between you and me…I knew this. I did not let it stop me. I did not let it change my feelings about me. I just kept going.
I started this course months ago. The teacher was always kind to me, but I saw her concern in her actions. I just continued on.
There will be people in your life who do not know how to handle the situation with you. It is ok. Realize it is their learning experience, not yours. You will meet people who do not know how to handle the situation with you. They might act odd to you. They might ignore you. They might not talk directly to you. It is ok. As long as you know you are loved and great, you’ll be ok. Remember, you are not the hall monitor this week. You are not responsible for other’s actions. The people acting oddly have to learn. They have to come up to speed. They will be other handicapped people that they will meet. You might be forging a path. Hold your head up high and know that we all are with you. Like I said you are not the hall monitor this week. You are not responsible for someone’s actions or bad reactions. They have to learn, not you. Hold your head high and keep truck’in. You can do it. You are not alone. We are with you always.
