Leading by example can always be a hard thing to do but that’s one thing I aim to do in my life. In my recent blog post I discussed the topic about my health and male anorexia story, after much comment reading I have found that a lot of people support my story and give lots of support which I really love to see because it has been hard for me and to this day still is.
The unfortunate thing like any news story it has a backlash of hate comments, now don’t get me wrong everyone is entitled to their own opinion but some of the comments got very personal. I don’t see why I should be judged because I was born with cerebral palsy and on a day-to-day basis I have to take a lot of tablets for anxiety, spasms, pain, constipation and anti acid. I wake up every morning feeling like rubbish, my family have to help me do everything that even includes a washing routine.
I hardly ever leave my house because I stumble and fall which means I go months on end not leaving the house and even if I do go out I am escorted by a family member. Even in my home I stumble and fall.
Never the less with this said I still help others if I can even if it is just a text seeing if they are ok. I know sometimes I can’t help because I don’t understand everything but I still try. I sometimes hate my learning difficulties because at times I want to help but I just can’t think of a solution.
In my life all I care about is making other people happy. I know that statement may seem silly but if I can just make one person smile then that makes me happy. I guess in a way that is how I get through day-to-day life, put this in prospective I am mostly bed bound but I still help others and the only reason why I still help people in that state is because it makes me feel like I am doing some good in this world.
On a last note, I only shared my story plus life events to lead by example. I don’t live behind a big smoke screen I am who I am.
If I can help just one person avoid the pain I go through day-to-day, then that means I have reached my goal.
