Write For Us There are so many great lessons we all learn from life. I personally made a list with some of the most important ones so far, lessons that had a great impact in my life. These lessons have helped me become the person I am today.
We go through every day with determination and strength, which many people are bowled over by, with many secretly wondering if they could do the same thing.
No matter the type of person, there are lessons to be learned from them. People with disabilities are especially influential, as our hardships in life aren't easily forgotten.
People with a disabilities learn so much throughout their lives; life lessons that able-bodied people rarely get to experience. Having a disability is definitely difficult, but it's also one of the richest classrooms a human can experience, too. While these learning experiences are more profound experienced directly, there are some special tokens of wisdom we can pass along.
Most say they would rather die than live with a disability, which makes me laugh.
That's because most able-bodied people can't imagine being happy if their body was ever permanently broken. But the truth is that the human brain is very adept at transitioning into someone with a disability, if you let it, that is.
I thought I would never be happy again. But a few years after becoming paralyzed, I was happy. I found happiness through simply being alive, and through family and friends.
I still wish I could walk again, but true happiness resides in me. You're told as a little kid how important patience is and as an adult you come to see how true this really is.
But when you have a disability, the patience required is at a whole new level. Very often we have to wait longer for all types of things and over time we become masters at honing in on it.
Patience has even helped me emotionally get over my physical inabilities in certain occasions. When you hear about people becoming disabled through an accident, you always think it could never happen to you, and you almost look at it like a TV show or movie -- something that could never be your reality.
But the cold-hard truth is that accidents that cause disabilities happen every day, and they could likely happen to you or someone you know. The realness of this possibility is tangible in all lives, but when you have a disability you're just a bit more aware of it. Maybe no congenital disabilities run your family, but say your first baby had cerebral palsy.
It's shocking suddenly finding yourself in the camp of either being disabled or the family member of one.
The wisdom here is to never forget we are all imperfect physical beings, and to never think you're exempt. We will all die one day and we're all human. Since having a disability can be rather stressful -- broken wheelchairs, health insurance cuts, caregivers suddenly quitting -- we learn early on to not let our stress levels get too high.
If we did, none of us would make it past We are confronted with crazy things all the time, so we learn to prioritize what is really worth freaking out over. That is why so many of us seem so zen-like. The movie is sold out?
