There is no greater disability in society than the inability to see a person as more. Robert M. Hensel
Some disabilities are easily observable while others are not. How aware are you of your behavior?
I have witnessed:
The cyclist with (normally unobservable) mobility issues be spoken condescendingly to when they ask for advice but needs *something more or different* than what suffices for an able bodied rider.
The person with an (observable) mental disability mirror behavior, desperately seeking acceptance and comraderie – only to have their behavior ridiculed by those very people they emulate.
Individuals with unseen struggles (depression, anxiety, past trauma) be told to “get over it” or “just get out and socialize “. These are just a few examples. Making assumptions that every person is every bit as capable as you are in every aspect of being is the harmful side of ego. We all have an immense amount of potential that simply needs nurturing.
Disagree with me? Have a conversation with Albert Einstein.
There is no greater disability in society than the inability to see a person as more.
