It’s hard for all of us to make genuine friends. None of us really knows what another person goes through, or has gone through. Nobody really knows another’s story. For a disabled person, I truly believe making a true friend can be even harder. I’ve always wondered what a person’s first thoughts are when they meet me. Are they hanging out, and doing stuff for me, because they truly want to do it, or because they just want to do a “good deed for the disabled girl.” OK, maybe some harsh, overdramatic thoughts, but I’d be lying if I said they weren’t mine. Basically, I want to share my story, and to spread disability awareness. To speak out about issues that matter, and to make the world a more accessible, accepting place, because I have to live in it too. To show you that I’m just a person with the same desires, dreams, and mistakes as anyone else. I wasn’t lying to you all when I said I was struggling. I’m struggling to find my voice, and to know God’s purpose for me, but if there’s one thing I am, it’s a fighter, and I don’t know about my fellow blogger, Ebony, but as long as my story helps one person to understand disability, and more importantly, to see Jesus, I don’t want to stop telling it.
In Christ’s Love,
