****huge long ANGRY rant**** Truth tea.
Humans are generally pretty terrible at being compassionate. Compassion is hard. It challenges everything thats been ingrained in you.
And alot of those ingrained habits are unlikely to become apparent until something meets you face to face to challenge it.
Lately, my life has been nuts. I feel like i aged a decade in just one year.
Because of this, some things have been pushed aside, including my maintaince physically.
MOST of you know I have mild Cerebral Palsy. If you don't know, and you are reading this, you probably met me at a time where I was more physically composed. --
If you want me to be painfully and humorously honest, right now, it looks like I walk with a tree trunk stuck up my ass. 🤷🏻♀️ a giant one. ---
I only half--way blame people for thier reactions. Even the most compassionate of people react brashly to things that make them uncomfortable. Perhaps they don't understand. They haven't received enough immersion in a specific atomsphere. Or they are just plain uncultivated.
I get it.
You didn't necessarily choose that.
What you CAN choose is respect.
If you don't know. Politely ask.
If you don't care. Stay quiet.
Please Learn. --
React only after you POSITIVELY know the situation in front of you.
I cannot begin to tell you how many people assume I am mentally incapable because I am hindered physically. ---
Understand that my body resists against me. None of that is my choice.
However, my cognitive abilities?
Onnnnnn pointttt. For that, I am VERY fortunate. My outcome could have been much worse, and tragically unfair.
I am 100% independent.
That is a blessing.
You're lucky I am 110% in control of my thoughts and actions.
I'd love to be a savvy asshole most of the time.
In fact, most days, I'll blow you out of the water.
But I always choose respect. ---
I CHOOSE growth in every aspect in my life that I have control over.
With that being said. I wish humans would fucking think before they act.
And if they act too quickly. Calm down and reevaluate.
Understand eachother for christ sake.
We are all in the same fight on this planet.
