The above quote was shared on Twitter, it got caught in my heart and I wanted to share it here as an encouragement to everyone, no matter where you are in life.
Injured, ill, unemployed, divorced, homeless, whatever our lot in life, even so, we still want to roar.
Being hurt or whatever doesn’t change our true spirit. This quote struck a chord with me because in this time of my life trying to ‘prove’ this weird disability sometimes I feel as though I do not belong in the well or disabled world.
Other people denying my disability doesn’t make it go away. It just means they need to soften their heart to change.
We all cheat ourselves when we believe an injured, disabled, homeless, unemployed – or whatever(!) person is any less a person for the label and limiting judgment we place on them.
“Label jars, not people.” Labels belong on shelves, in closets, cupboards, or storage rooms, people do not.
