Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. Thank you. Several days ago I wrote the article, How to Improve Self-Esteem and Self-worth while Living with a Disability. I have felt led to write several articles after I wrote this article, so I have not yet made a video presentation of this article. I have completed those articles and today will begin making video presentations of my most recent articles. Below is an excerpt of the above article.
“As individuals living with disabilities (visible or invisible) we are faced with a struggle. The struggle can significantly impact our self-esteem and feelings of self-worth. The impact of such a struggle can lead us to believe that we deserve to be abused. The struggle can lead us to believe that we deserve to be ridiculed, ostracized, minimized, marginalized, dismissed and discounted. The struggle can lead us to believe that societal stigmatization is justified.
The struggle can leave us to believe that we do not deserve to have a voice. The struggle can lead us to believe that we are the problem, instead of believing that we are part of the solution.
For many years I bought into the above notions. I felt as though there was some thing inherently wrong with me. Through my process, I discovered why I bought into the notion that I deserved to be abused, ridiculed, ostracized, minimized, marginalized, dismissed and discounted. What I discovered was that I had been carrying shame that did not belong to me. What I discovered helped me to grow in self-esteem and self-worth by breaking free of societal stigmatization. What I discovered, helped me to learn how to begin to trust the process, a loving God and myself.
Several years ago I wrote the below article to share what I discovered through my process. What I share in this article helped me to begin to heal and see myself as an integral part of the solution.”
