Lack of expectation is the reason most “disabled” people don’t reach their full potential – that’s what I learned today
It’s 7 : 03 PM on day 887 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, take off my dirty t-shirt and put a clean t-shirt on, feed myself a peanut butter sandwich for breakfast, pray, read Exodus 7, publish my Disability of the Day feature, practice typing with both hands, work, practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles, feed myself rice and curry for lunch and put a hoodie on by myself - it took me like thirty minutes to do but I did it eventually I am so proud of me
Today I was wondering why some people break the “disability” stereotype while others live up to it and realized that those who break the “disability” stereotype either have high expectations of themselves or have people in their lives who have high expectations of them while others do not. Do you have high expectations for all your kids regardless of whether they have a “disability” or not?
I LOVE hearing from you feel free to leave a comment below.
