What Do I Really Want (StoryADay post)

I just want people to see me for who I am, not what they think I am.

Just because I have a disability doesn’t give people the right to judge me. People don’t have the right to judge me at all. I hate being judged because that means that they will either pity me, or ridicule me or reject me. I don’t need anyone’s pity or scorn.

I just need their acceptance.

For me, everything in my life hinges on whether or not people accept me. I cannot stand it if someone chooses to not accept me because of my disability. I wish that I could force people to accept me whether they wanted to, but that wouldn’t be good, now would it?

I just want to be accepted, that’s all.
