I'm a person who has a disability and why is it hard to fit in? I have always wondered why we who have a disability can't do certain things that other people can do. When ever we try to say something like a opinion people tell us we are "wrong". I'm sick and tired of waiting for others to listen to me when I have something important to say and they don't care. I'm always afraid that something bad will happen if I go out in public and sometimes I know people stare or take pictures or say something bad. It is just very had for us to fit in and it sometimes ends up bad.Just because I may look small and weak does not mean I am weak. I have pushed a cart full of 25 pond bags of sugar. I may be small and don't talk much does not mean that it is fine to say "oh well she has nothing good to say".

Hello there Annelise,

How are you doing? I was just thinking about you the other day:-)

Aw:( I hear you. I quite often feel like I'm being ignored, too, and that people don't listen to me. In my case, a lot of it has to do with perception, and some it is was how I was raised, and how I perpetuate the pattern of staying small and not speaking up. I hope you are able to transcend what you've learned and how you're treated, and are able to speak up. Your voice and opinion are important and you deserve to be heard!

Hey there:-)

Good to hear. I don't remember. It was a couple of days ago, and I thought, "what happened to Annelise?" I agree it is hard, but like most things that are hard, the gold is at the end of all the hard work.

Agreed, and you're welcome:-)

Hope you have a good day!

Jlanghus thank you for saying that and thank you for thinking of me. Ha yes there is and you too.

Hello, Annalise,

I have a soft spot in my heart to all people with disabilities because my firstborn son belong to the tribe. Please continue to raise your voice until the scales of society's eyes will fall off and see you as a beautiful differently-abled human being. Hugs.

Dear Annelise,
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. It happens to me as well sometime before, but what I learned is to respect yourself, love yourself and have faith upon you. It really makes differences believe me. love and regards, anjana

We are all disabled in one way or the other, some not as physical as others. The challenge is to accept our weaknesses, identify our strengths and draw from them to make our disabilities and disadvantages less significant. Celebrate not fitting in, as it means you stand out from the crowd and can stand alone, a handicap few can overcome. Not belonging is an asset, not a liability. It is what makes you unique so rather than feel belittled by those making derisive comments or overtures, show them how your disability also makes your stronger. They may be grateful for it!
