When you're disabled, you need to cherish every meaningful moment. There are so many times when we feel down. So take every moment you can to be happy and be with the ones you love.
So often, we are so busy rushing though our lives, that we forget to stop and enjoy these moments. For most people it’s, just how they are, but every moment we have, needs to be cherished. After all, there might come a day when we truly can’t. What a shame that would be. It would be a shame both for the person with the disability, and their loved ones. There are only a few times in our lives we can make memories.
We carry those memories with us forever, and so do our loved ones. The memories you make today will get you through your toughest parts of your lives. As for me, I will cherish my husband, kids and grandchildren. I find that even on our worst days, these are the people we lean on the most. Ironically, these are also the people who hurt us the most, because they cannot understand our disabilities. It hurts them to see us when we are weak.
But through our weakness, we gain strength! We just need to speak up when people are hurting us! They may not realize how their words can hurt us. Some day, even though they may not realize it, everyone will experience disability on one level or another.
