National Personal Trainer Awareness Month on January, 2018: Should I get viewed and treated differently, because of a disability? I'm confused
January, 2018 is National Personal Trainer Awareness Month 2018.
Firstly you are no different to any one of us or your brothers. Just because you have a disability doesnt make you any less of a person or make you any less able to follow in the career you want. You are still only young and have much more to learn about life even more so the big wide world out there. Sure you are going to come across little minded people who think they are better than you or think your no good for the job. When you apply for jobs the best thing to do is even though it is hard but try to be confident. It is all about selling yourself and your disability should not even come into the equation unless you allow it too. Always say to a prospective employer you always do your best and dont allow your disability to stop you from achieving your dreams.
Brothers and sisters can be hurtful to eachother. Sometimes actually being honest with them how they make you feel can help but not always. Have you tried to talk to them? Does your dad listen to you or do you feel you can not talk to him. I am prehaps not the best person on this topic but from my own experiences through life of every kind there is always a solution to every problem.
YOU are not a failure. If at first you fail, then try try again.
Look out for YOU. This life is yours and no one elses.
Dont let others whoever they are tell you what you can achieve or not achieve.
Make your mind up about what you want...see it in your future and work hard to bring your dreams closer to you until they are yours.
Life does get very hard sometimes and we have feelings and thoughts that we would be better off not here, but honey trust me failure only comes to you if you quit. You can send me a message if you like and i will give you my email address if you need further help or advice.
All the best and although its hard...chin up
Why do I get looked down upon because of my mild learning disability? I'm confused, (UK)?
Your brothers can 'stick it where the sun doesn't shine'!!!
Quite frankly, I think your youth worker is not only useless. She is not being honest with you. They are not looking for ways to capitalize on your strengths.
People with disabilities, consistently, get less respect. What the 'normal' people never think about, is that they one day could become disabled. Late comedian Rodney Dangerfield's mantra 'I don't get no respect', could easily be the mantra of someone with a disability. I remember in grade school, being the last one to be picked for the team.
To sort of give you an emotional boost, go to the website Bike Forums in the 'Adaptive Cycling' sub forum, at the web address below, and read about those who are cyclists with a disability.
Volunteering can open the door to paid employment.
Should people think less of me, because of a disability? I'm confused please help (UK)?
man look at all the stuff you've achieved and your 19! Anyone who thinks any less of you is the (as you put it) "spastic" that goes for your two brothers as well!....hold your head up man be proud of what you've done and don't let anyone else dictate how you feel about yourself
