Better to have too high a standard than too low a standard – that’s what I learned today 🙂
It’s 7: 36 PM on day 386 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself yoghurt for breakfast, prepare and publish my Disability of the Day feature, practice typing with both hands, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – Chrissy (@chrissy_bertolo) made a donation – thanks Chrissy I REALLY appreciate you donating the money you usually use to buy coffee to my campaign I wish more people were like you 🙂 – listen to music, feed myself rice and curry for lunch, watch TV and feed myself a banana for dinner.
This morning my sister and I were discussing books and she said you’re so picky which I now realize was a complement although I didn’t at the time because most people of my generation settle for anything they have whether it be love from an abusive boyfriend or terrible books because they believe they don’t deserve any better whereas I, who in my teenage years would have accepted anybody and anything into my life because I believed I was less than because I had Cerebral Palsy, have come to understand that people who really want to be in my life will be willing to be pay the price of admission i.e. treat me with dignity and respect and always be honest with me. Do you set high standards for the people and things you let into your life?
