“But I don’t want to overhaul myself entirely. This year doesn’t need to be about reinventing myself. I don’t want to wake up one morning and discover a new me. Instead, I want this to finally be the year I learn to love myself first and always. This means I need to stop questioning and start embracing what I’m proud of. Because even when I do something awesome, I usually still need someone to talk me into how awesome it is. And trust me, I’m not saying this to toot my own horn. I’m saying it because I think this kind of behavior is a universal part of being human. It’s most definitely not exclusive to disabled people. Most of us, myself included, are so quick to be self-deprecating instead of taking an opportunity here and there to say “damn right, I’m awesome!” We’re more likely to be on a constant lookout for the things we think we need to fix, often for the sake of others, even when there’s nothing really “wrong” with us to begin with.”
