Some people need to tear you down to lift themselves up– that’s what I keep learning
It’s 4 : 43 PM on day 629 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself scrambled eggs and bread for breakfast, drink Green Tea by myself, publish my Disability of the Day feature, publish my Kid of the Week feature, hang out with my family, work, listen to music – I LOVE Megan and Liz (check out some of their videos at the end of this post) – and feed myself Greek yogurt for lunch.
This afternoon my brother said to my father beaming with pride check out the well that chechi (chechi means older sister/older female cousin in my parents’ mother tongue of Malayalam) built and in response to that my father said in Malayalam they probably put up a picture of some random well then to make matters worse he said with sarcasm in his voice well done Nisha your reward is in heaven it stung a little but it didn’t change the fact that I was proud of myself and what I did. Do you take to heart the words of those who are trying to tear you down?
I LOVE hearing from you feel free to leave a comment below.
