I am not broken

I am continually struggling these days,  I struggle with people treating me like I’m broken. Ironically I feel pretty good about myself right now and what I’m doing and how I’m managing with things, but there a lot of people who don’t get that. Sometimes I’m even treated like I’m mentally deficient because clearly if I have a physical disability I must not be mentally capable either. Try as I might I can’t shrug these people off, the truth is they get to me and I don’t know how to stop them from getting to me.

The more people treat me like I am broken the more I start to believe that I am. I don’t mean people who are legitimately asking about my health or taking how I feel into account, those people are angels. I mean the people who assume I’m useless without ever bothering to get to know me. My body may be broken, but I am not because I am not my body. Inside I’m stronger then you can even imagine. I have been bent and stretched and expanded in every way but I have held strong and refused to break (not yet anyway).

  1. The people who don't know you, don't matter. If they are not willing to take the time to get to know you then why take the time to let them get to you? I know it's easier said than done, but discard their opinions. They don't matter. The people that matter are the people that care about you, and that you care about. You can't be hurt by someone who doesn't matter.
