“I really enjoy my ‘clients’ as people, especially for their often amazingly upbeat attitude despite their challenges…”
As a disabled person this is something I explain almost on the daily to people who are curious about my disability and often say I’m an “inspiration” We have challenges yes. But our life is not a challenge. We have grown up with our disability. We learned how to grow up with our disability the same way you learned how to walk and talk and eat. We don’t say you’re an inspiration because you can do every day tasks right? That’s what it feels like when someone tells me I’m an inspiration to them.
Everyone goes through challenges regardless if you have a disability or not. some are just more visible than others.
