Yup I really don’t know what the heck I want to call this one.
Life is different for all of us and I am very sure that many of us are experiencing different effects to it.
I can say I am no different. I spent the last 10+ years trying to get used to living in the world with the challenges that I had.
I made mistakes but I learned from them.
That was then and this is now
With the onset of the pandemic and racial injustice in the world I am starting to see the true side of people; myself include.
I’m finding it necessary to reevaluate how I do things once again.
New memories of past injustices seem to have become present. Why is it that even though I was almost killed 12 years ago that someone today in a very similar situation and actually dies seem to get all the media attention?
Or the racial injustices are played out differently. I am not a minority but often it feels like it. I am often treated worse than minority but once again media seems to be more focused on getting equality for minority individuals. What about all of the millions of individuals living with disabilities? Don’t they deserve to be treated equal?
Life is not fair and I try to portray that in my life.
I make mistakes but so does everyone else
I could have said screw it and just lived on SSDI for the rest of my life. But I was young and I had so much ahead of me Many people think they know that I am doing it all wrong, then we have those who congratulate you for taking a chance, you also have those who want to find a way to piss you off, and yet you still have those who think you must be like them in order to live.
So who do you want to be?
I know I am not normal Who else can say they survived death and got a Master’s degree in Forensic Accounting?
We are all individuals and it is up to us how we want to live!
