Privilege

The world we live in is a beautiful place with so many opportunities, but unfortunately it is not always fair.  There are people that may have privileges and find their goals are more easily attained.  People’s shortcomings may be due to race, sexual orientation, or in my case physical ability.  Dealing with my disability has not been easy because I never saw myself as different.  I wanted to achieve the same goals as my siblings even though I did not have the same privileges as they did.  My goal was to be better then them and show everybody that I may be limited in certain areas of my life but it is up to me to decide what those areas are.  Instead of getting down on myself and not trying to achieve my dreams, I used the people that doubted me as motivation to be better and make sure nobody could tell me what I can and cannot do.  It is important to remember that no matter what your limitation is, there is nothing stopping you from achieving your goals but yourself.
