Growing up, especially in high school, I was more self-conscious about my disability. I think just growing up and realizing that we all have our own issues and things that we’re self-conscious about helped me to shed a lot of those disability insecurities. But it’s a constant learning process, one that I’m not sure you’re ever finished with.
I’d love to know, friends: How would you answer this question? Have there been times in your life where you’ve more self-conscious? How did you get through those times? Do you think those struggles ultimately made you a stronger person? xoxo
