Your Disability is not My Inspiration | Lifting Taboos

Don’t use your kids disability, story, pain, frustration, anger…and later accomplishments to inspire others. If they choose to do it on their own, then that is their prerogative.

  1. One thing that drives me nuts about this is that the disabled don’t often want to be noticed, they just want to live a full life. They want to be acknowledged for what they do just like anyone else. Heaping praise upon them for their ability to function with a disability is kind of ridiculous really. Let them live and do what they can to get by without having to be treated like a show pony to make people feel inspired.

  2. Totally agree. I have a “disability” which is really a chronic illness that Social Security calls a disability but I am not disabled. I am able to do a lot of things and I live my life embracing the moments that I can do these things. Re kids, I don’t have a disabled child but if I did, I would want them to do the same, embrace their life and live it.
