Nothing to prove…
There are so many times I wish I could just grab someone by the shoulders and shake them until they understand, I AM CAPABLE.
I think it bothers me more that people doubt my ability to do things (take care of my children, be a good wife, drive (okay…that’s a separate topic all together), or live a quality life). I have a great life. I enjoy my job, I love my family, I love it all, but it never fails when I am the recipient of an”are you sure?” look or a “you don’t have to prove yourself to me” comment that makes me frustrated at a body that can’t walk, but is so much more capable. It makes me question who I am as a mother, wife or friend. I second guess abilities I KNOW I possess and then I second guess my worth. THEN I remember, HEY!!!! Who do they think they are? OR better yet…. Why do I even care?! I know who I am. My children and husband know who I am and what I can do.
I am so much more than my body. I am so much more than my inabilities. I am….handicapable. I can, therefore I will.
