Introducing myself and my journal: Transforming the 'dis' from 'dis-ability'
I have a disability. From about the age of 4 years on, my disability was internalized as 'less than' or as ' not as good as others'. I spent most of my childhood and much of my adulthood convincing myself that I was not disabled, that disablement was just a matter of perception. Feelings of not 'being as good as' haunted my subconscious but my outward facade likely demonstrated, or at least I thought, the opposite. Recently, I have re-discovered that I am disabled, that others see me as disabled, and that the internalized, 'not as good as', was still robbing me of the freedom to 'be'. Although social structures and their grip on people's perception create the 'dis' in dis-ability, the personal challenge of removing 'internalized difference' is a road that has taken me years to accept. I now feel... fearless...with all of the aspects that make me who I am....I invite everyone to discover the 'dis' of dis-ability, and walk with me on the road of transformation.
