It’s never a good idea to judge someone or something by how they look.
Something may look damaged and it may be on the inside, however that may not always be the right idea. The damaged item may have been repurposed to make/do something else.
A common example is a banana. When it is first picked it may be green but it ages over time. When it gets brown most often you won’t want to eat it because of it’s color but you can use it to make banana bread. Either way is delicious. The appearance of it changes.
Just because you may look different does not mean that you should be singled out. You may have hidden talents or untapped knowledge.
You may be able to rap better than your friends or you may be more athletic than your friends.
If there is someone or something better, do you really want to give up?
Or would you rather push through it? And improve your situation. Improve your quality of life.
The choice is yours ultimately but it’s never a good idea to judge a book by it’s cover.
When I first got to the hospital, doctors just saw what they saw in textbooks. They didn’t want to think or believe anything else. All they saw was a human unbreathing with severe physical damage. I really can’t blame them. It was my parents who stood up for me.
I really just want to see their jaws drop if they saw me now. I’m driving, I own a house, Got my AS, BS, MS in college, and paracycle all around the world.
The cover they saw doesn’t reflect what I am able to do now.
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Embrace the differences!
