Using the Blessings of my Condition to Make The World Better

No comments

Having CP is challenging to be sure. Some days it’s rough. There is other way to say it. However, I do not want to focus on the bad days. I choose to keep a positive attitude. Having CP affords me blessings others do not have. Sounds crazy, right? Nope, not crazy. It’s the truth. These blessings are as follows:

  1. Empathy: I have an empathy for others who are different that I wouldn’t have without CP. I understand that everyone wants t be seen and valued. It’s what I want for myself as well. I don’t always get the chance to be seen and valued because of my condition. Due to being seen as different I don’t want anyone to feel I treated them any differently based on anything. Everyone deserves to live as they choose.
  2. Tolerance: My job is to love everyone as I love myself because of my faith. That is an active commission where I do everything I can to put my money where my mouth is so to speak. I refuse to hate anyone based on their choices or who they are. I choose tolerance. I make those choices daily. I choose tolerance as well is because it’s what I want for myself. I don’t always get the tolerance I deserve as a human being. If I deserve tolerance (and I do) in order to get it: I have to give it to everyone I come in contact with. I may not understand your life or choices because those things don’t look like mine, but I support your decisions that you made for yourself.

I want my story and journey to be an example of light and love. I want my blog to be a place where grace is given. I want it be a place where we forgive each other when we need to. I want this blog to be a community that loves and lifts each other up. I believe we can be and do that if I lead by example. Thank you all for reading, commenting, and sharing. It means the world to me that you do so. If anyone needs someone to reach out: please do so. I want to help all of you in these unprecedented times. Please do everything you can to stop the spread of this virus.
