If have Cerebral Palsy, here are five pieces of advice I will give you

Due to Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month, I often think about what I would like a child to know about my experiences with cerebral palsy, living with cerebral palsy in this generation, since, let’s face it, the world isn’t especially made for someone like us, and we constantly have to deal with a wide range of challenges and obstacles, along with the stigma that surrounds it.

My advice to a child with Cerebral Palsy would be: you are not different, and society should accept you, not the other way around. You are unique in your own way, and you were created that way for a reason, so don’t let anyone knock you down, instead be the one who shines the light.

As for my second piece of advice, embrace the ride and have fun, because you only get one chance to live your life. Even if you were diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at a young age, it is not your fault, obviously things are beyond your control. However, what I want people to know is that you only get one chance to live your life, so take advantage of it, enjoy it, and leave it because there is only one time.

It’s not easy, especially when you’re a kid and you don’t really know all the ins and outs yet, so take it one day at a time. If you are a child, my advice is to take the journey day by day and not focus too much on bed days. Instead, you can inspire others to overcome the barriers that stand in their way.

Those are my three pieces of advice for anyone living with Cerebral Palsy. Fourth, don’t give up. It may seem hard at times to live with this condition, but I promise you that it gets better over time. So don’t give up on your dreams, your goals, and everything you desire because one day you’ll get there.

Fifthly, don’t let the medical system stress you out. Having Cerebral Palsy can make navigating a medical system that wasn’t designed for us difficult. As individuals, we must keep fighting and striving to be the best we can be. We are the only ones who speak up for ourselves.

The last advice is to follow your heart and never let anyone interfere with it. When it comes to Cerebral Palsy, we all have dreams and goals we would like to achieve, but it’s up to us not to let others interfere with our journeys and how we will live our lives. Don’t let anyone interfere with that, and just be who you are, and the rest will follow.If you have Cerebral Palsy, here are five pieces of advice I will give you
