I just wanted too let all of you dear readers out there know that my cousin's went out too the mall today! We had a ball hanging out together! We bought some things that we needed and some things we just bought because we felt like it!
Then we ate lunch in the food court! So all in all we had a AWSOME day together!
You should NEVER feel embarrassed or ashamed to do fun things with family and friends because of your disability! You should be thankful that you can go places and do things that you enjoy! A lot of disabled people can't drive, but just because you can't drive doesn't mean that you can't enjoy activities and have a fun-filled life!
It's always VERY important to have special people or a special person that you can rely on to help live a fun,active, and NORMAL life as possible! You should ALWAYS treat people with respect, because if you don't treat people with respect than no one will want too have anything to do with you!
I'm VERY lucky that I have special people,close friends and family that truly care about the real me, the person that's inside and NOT how I look on the outside! Having C.P. isn't fun for anyone, but when you have C.P. you just have to make the best of it! SURE things are difficult hard for you to accomplish, but if you try your hardest to be as NORMAL as possible your life will be a WHOLE lot different!
Please everyone take my advice, a disabled persons life can be hard and is very difficult for someone that's NOT disabled to understand and deal with at times, it also can be very stressful! But if you have a strong family network and strong friendships with people, your life doesn't have to be a scary place, with people that are willing to help you, you will be able to do things that you've always dreamed of doing that you couldn't do by yourself!
Also being disabled is a TOTALLY different world, than someone that is non-disabled or "NORMAL" "As I call it"! People truly don't have a clue on what a day to day life it is for someone with C.P.!
Everything I do, I have to think BEFORE I do it! It can be VERY frustrating and mading! It's also uncomfortable for me to ask people for help ALL the time! So that's why I'm lucky that I'm as self-sufficient as I am!
I'm VERY lucky that I have special friends and my loving family that likes me for who I am and NOT for what I look like! It doesn't matter to them if somethings take longer than they should, and they're willing to wait around and help!
Always remember this, just because you have Cerebral Palsy or any other disability, it doesn't mean that people have to or will wait for you, because guess what, they DON'T! I'm just very lucky that it doesn't bother my family and friends!
So all in all, PLEASE take my advice, if you do you'll find your life can be and will be a wonderful journey! YOU have to choose how YOU want you life to live your! No one can make that decision for you, you are the ONLY one that can make things easier for yourself!
