We all have had a share of bad days. There were (and definitely more to come) times when we feel as if we have awoken on the wrong side of the bed. We feel pessimistic about almost everything. Living with a disability feels kind of like that. It can twist every aspect of our being—physically, emotionally, mentally, socially, and spiritually. It is up to us to battle such feeling.
GIANTABILITY is a Religious Organization in Indianapolis, Indiana. We help people with disability (PWD) overcome whatever it is they are struggling with. In this post, we aim to teach you some ways on how to lift up your spirit despite your disability.
- Start your mornings on a positive note.
What do you usually do as soon as you wake up? Do you sulk because of your disability? We hope not. If you do, you need to stop. It will not do you any good. Instead, start your mornings on a positive note. Studies suggest that how you start your day can have a huge influence on how you tackle the rest of it. So, exercise and get yourself a nutritious and palatable breakfast.
- Do not be defined by your condition.
Always bear in mind that your disability does not define who you are. You are more than just a person who cannot walk, see, hear, or speak. There are so many things you are still capable of doing despite your disability. Focus on these things rather than your condition.
- Stop worrying about what others think of you.
You cannot please everyone. You cannot control what other people think or feel about you. So why should you worry? Worrying about it can just lead to overthinking. Meaning, you will be worrying about things that may be non-existent in the first place.
- Cut toxic people out of your life.
Having a disability is not something one should make a joke about. If someone makes fun of your disability or makes you feel like you are less of a human being because of your condition, cut them out of your life right away. Do not hang out with people who are not good for your mental health. You do not need them. Surround yourself with family and friends who make you feel better.
- Find your purpose in life.
One way you can find your purpose in life is to do something fulfilling. For instance, you can inspire other people who are facing the same struggles as you. GIANTABILITY is a Charity Organization in Indianapolis, Indiana. Our mission is to help PWD unleash their potentials. Feel free to join us by volunteering in our outreach programs or by making any cash donation.
Do not take your disability as a limitation. Instead, use it as a tool for you (and probably for other people like you) to become a better and stronger human being. Any thoughts? Please do not hesitate to share it with us.
