BURDEN
The word burden has been coming up for me a lot over the past few days, especially in the context of disability.
The burden of a broken, ill, painful, restrictive body
The burden of a society that's not built to accommodate a slower pace
The burden we place on our carers and loved ones either through the physical care we need or the sacrifices they make and the doors that close to them by opening their lives and hearts to us.
The burden on the public purse from benefits, health care and (oh how I hate this phrase)
BURDEN The word burden has been coming up for me a lot over the past few days, especially in the context of disability. The burden of a broken, ill, painful, restrictive body The burden of a society that's not built to accommodate a slower pace The burden we place on our carers and loved ones either through the physical care we need or the sacrifices they make and the doors that close to them by opening their lives and hearts to us. The burden on the public purse from benefits, health care and (oh how I hate this phrase) "reasonable adjustments" I'm not going to lie and pretend I've never felt like a burden. Most especially on my incredible husband who shows up for me constantly without any resentment or grumbles. Actually, that's not true, he grumbles plenty but usually about my long phone calls with friends or choice of TV show, never about the support he gives me. I often wish I could be and do more for my kids but then, doesn't every parent? What I've come to realise over the past few days is that on some level I over compensate so as to be an asset rather than a burden to those I love. I love with my whole heart, I give more time, energy and presence than I have to give and then some. The biggest burden of all? The fact that no matter how much I get taken for granted and smacked in the face, my heart stays open. Here's the thing though, I might be soft hearted but I'm not stupid. My body might not be optimum but my eyes, ears and intuition work just fine. I KNOW when I'm being disregarded, disrespected, overlooked and undermined. So please, let me unburden you of the pretense. Those who truly love me and whom I love know that we enhance each others lives way more than any disability or illness can detract. Those who think otherwise, please don't let me hold you back from your awesomeness. So in the words of the amazing @zoes_story "If I am a burden, I hope I'm a heavy one so I can crush society's barriers" #wheeliemommalife #wheeliemomma #disabledmom #disability #blogger #speaker #author #coach #empowerment #intuitivecoach
