Making ‘poor me’ no more

I would like to see a society where nobody, especially disabled people, no longer feel sorry for themselves. I am not saying this is going to be easy but can’t see why having a positive attitude can not be the norm.

Being positive is not about smiling all the time or being passive but it is about having an constructive attitude to solving problems and making a contribution to society. It is moving from what can the country do for me to what can I do for the country. 

And for disabled people, it means recognising the limitations from impairment and working with this information to be creative in achieving whatever you want. Being a victim is a choice too many people easier make.

I feel the issues faced by many disabled people can only be overcome by a positive attitude and society must assist disabled people to achieve this.
