With the holidays coming up, I tend to think about all the things I want for Christmas and I can’t think of anything, on the top of my head, except for one simple thing awareness and acceptance when it comes to Cerebral Palsy.
I don’t want to cure it because I don’t hate my Cerebral Palsy. After all, it has given me a life full of adventures but I can’t say I dislike it because the simple reasoning of Cerebral palsy is a gift in itself.
But all I want is for the world to understand and gain knowledge about this condition because that would be a step in the right direction of making the world easier to adapt to.
Not saying that we can’t figure it out but if we had more people who were opened minded to the issues people with Cerebral palsy have to face than the world would be more accessible and have more options for accessibility we can worry about the buildings later
Let’s just focus on educating others and giving them knowledge about Cerebral palsy because that’s what leads to doors opening in new beginnings for our community all around. The way I look at it is if I’m able to spread awareness and educate
Someone, then I’ve done everything I needed to do to make this holiday season a magical one and that’s all I want for Christmas and all year round actually because people with Cerebral palsy never stop fighting and being courageous throughout this difficult journey.
Once we educate we begin to grow and prosper and that’s all I want for the cerebral palsy community this year and I want people to have a better understanding that people with cerebral palsy may have this condition but it doesn’t define them and we will continue to tell our stories to the best of our abilities.
All I want for Christmas is awareness so that people with Cerebral palsy don’t have to go through the same struggles I went through meaning the newer generation because it’s no longer about us as adults it’s about what can we do to better the next generation of people with Cerebral palsy and the world around us.
