Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. Recently, I wrote the article: Dispelling the Notion of Dis-ability — I Just Do Things in Ways that Work For Me. In today’s article I am going to introduce the article in video presentation format. I create video presentations of my articles to provide, the information within the articles; to individuals who learn more effectively through watching and listening. In my experience, I need to remember that I am the only one who can live my life. With that reality in mind I need to remember these quotes:
“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.” Helen Keller
“Regardless of your lot in life, you can build some thing beautiful on it.” Zig Ziglar
“It is not as important as what happens to us, but how we respond to what happens to us.” Craig J. Phillips MRC, BA
“One who gains strength by overcoming obstacles possesses the only strength which can overcome adversity.” Albert Schweitzer
“Everyone is trying to accomplish something big, not realizing that life is made up of little things.” Frank A. Clark
“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” Zig Ziglar
I can definitely identify with you on this front. I attempted to prove that I was “not” disabled for many years. I did so in an attempt to prove that I was not “defective”, that there was not something “wrong” with me and as a result, I was worth loving and given respect. In my experience, I had to reach a point when the pain of denying my reality had to supersede my need to deny my reality — in my attempt to prove that there was nothing “defective” or “wrong” with me. In my experience, I had to confront my denial — despite feeling defective and as though there was some thing wrong with me. In my experience, I had to confront my denial before I could begin to love and accept myself as an individual. In my experience, I discovered that I needed to move through the 5 stages of grieving, as posited by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross in her book; On Death and Denying. The five stages: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance.
In my experience, I discovered that I needed to confront both my denial and the denial systems set about me before I could dispel the notion of dis-ability. In my experience, I discovered that I needed to work through these stages before I could begin to see the possibilities of my ability.”
