People are who they are, give or take 15 percent. That’s how much people can change if they really want to. ~ Mitchell (a character in the TV show Modern Family)
It’s 5 : 18 PM on day 595 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself All Bran Flakes for breakfast, publish my Disability of the Day feature, drink Green Tea by myself, exercise my right hand – almost there need more practice picking up and putting down a coffee mug with my right hand –hang out, feed myself Batura and potato curry for lunch and watch TV.
Today I was practicing picking up and putting down a coffee mug with my right hand and it really bothered me that my parents didn’t acknowledge how hard I was trying to better myself but now I realize that it was nothing personal my parents didn’t make a big deal out of me picking up and putting down a coffee mug with my right hand because they can do it so easily I could tell them that the “simple” things I do are a big deal to me but you what why bother they are just not the kind of people who make a big deal out of “small” accomplishments and besides I already know (and am proud of) how hard I try why do I need acknowledgement from my parents. Do you sometimes wish you could change people and make them into who you want them to be?
