Over 15 years ago I probably should have been killed. I hate to say it but my injuries were far too great!
Someone was looking over me, I presume it was my father who passed away when I was 14 years old
With my injuries, my mom and stepdad knew that it would be a long road but really no one knew how bumpy that may be.
I had to relearn everything including many things that people took for granted.
I could have chosen to live off of Social Security and Military Veteran Assistance for the rest of my life but I know I had a purpose. Many people have tried to instill that thought on me and many have left because I wasn’t giving in to them. But some people have chosen to stay, you know who you are, and continue to stick with me.
With the sense of purpose in mind, it seems that I must fight in order to be treated fairly. There seems to be an unconscious bias going on and I am really not sure how to overcome that.
Just when I think I am finally getting through to someone, I must now get through to someone else. Usually these people are attention grabbers or even people considered to be “steamrollers”. They think they are right no matter what. Perhaps they are jealous of you? Who knows?
Yes I’ll admit there has been times when I just have considered ending it but I remind myself there must be a reason why I am still here. That’s the greatest power in it all.
What is your purpose in life?
How are you getting through to others to make them understand?
