Pity Or Compassion?

I realize most of my blog reflects on my past life and struggles. Thing is, I don’t ask for sympathy. But why do people pity me? Or is it compassion? I know most of you show compassion, I really do. But, then the other half is giving me a pity party. What’s going on?

Compassion is sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others.

Pity is the feeling of sorrow and compassion caused by the suffering and misfortunes of others.

Ummm, well I don’t really know….Most of my success I’ve had is due to my own hard work. Everything it took in my own power to get where I am today. Let’s face it. You’re sorry I had to go through all that? I’m not. Ever hear “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger?” Like…duh?

Okay. Having moments of insecurities and struggles doesn’t mean that you’re weak. In any way, shape or form. I may be trying to change the stigma behind disabilities but being kinder, being you will take you on a higher road.

The world is a better place when we lift each other up.

One more thing, don’t help people if you expect something in return. Kindness has its own powers. However, if I hold the door for you and you don’t thank me, I’ma slam the door right back at ya.

Have a great day everyone!

PS: I’m all ears for questions. Don’t be afraid to ask. Leave them below or private message me on Facebook or Instagram.
