Dear person I’m jealous of,
by clubfang

Dear person I´m jealous of, 

Being jealous doesn´t lead to anything and I damn well know that.

Still I am. It all seams so easy.
You have known to be good at turning a fly into an elephant. I´m jealous of that, because while your ultimate concern is what party you want to get drunk at next. Or where to move. Or wanting a piercing. Things are blowing up around me. Yeah, if my boat sinks. I´ll swim.

You have so much you just don´t see it. Life seams so easy on you, until you turn everything into an elephant. 
I wish I could make you understand that the world doens´t ow you a thing. It doesn´t exist so you can burn it down. 

I´m learning to be humble. I´ve stopped wasting my energy on empty air and elephants. 

Best wishes,
Y

( sorry this is soooooo late. I just found it.)

Interesting Writing Prompts

avalonnightwick:

  1. Every year on your birthday, you are visited by yourself from one year in the future. This year, no one shows up.
  2. Describe each day of the week as if it were a person.
  3. Write a story that begins with a word randomly picked from the dictionary.
  4. You wake up in the…

For the first time in a very long time I cried because I was happy. I cried hard and hysterically. After years of trying my family has finally been approved for a loan to purchase a house. We have been living in a beat up, run down mobile home that’s been slowly but surely falling apart for years. Now we finally have the opportunity to escape. My family’s struggles are no where near as severe as some others but I’m just happy to know that it looks as if ours are over. For so long I’ve hated this place. I’ve thought of myself as the “Boy in a Box.” I felt as if I was trapped in this crumbling home. I felt as if there was no hope. I was destined to be the lower half of society. But now, I feel hopeful. Now, I feel free.

REBLOG THIS IF YOU WOULD DATE A PERSON CONFINED TO A WHEELCHAIR

justifiably-supernatural:

My best friend (and boyfriend) had never had a girlfriend before we met and he is certain that it is because able bodied people are not interested in dating wheelchair-bound people, especially someone that can only functionally use his left hand. Personally, I find this more very distressing that most people would dismiss him as a potential partner for something so very out of his control.

So, I want you to reblog this if you would date a wheelchair-bound person.

I totally would. But can I just say: can you please stop saying wheelchair bound? It’s just.. think about the picture it paints. You know? It’s not like wheelchair users. Is actually. Literally “bound” to the chair.

What's wrong with calling a disabled person inspirational!? Just curious because in my opinion every person who is disabled is an inspiration about fighting and having courage etc.
by Anonym

disabilitythinking:

marauders4evr:

The clock just struck midnight and I’m extremely exhausted so I’ll give you a brief summary and hopefully other people will reblog and add their comments to further explain.

The reason why I think it’s wrong is because it’s sort of like putting a person on display at a museum? Does that make sense? Or maybe it’s like putting a person on a pedestal?

I’m really tired so my metaphors aren’t exactly at the level of Uncle Iroh.

Anyway, there are people with disabilities who are inspirational and do inspirational things and overcome so much. I get that.

But there are also people who think that a person with a disability is an inspiration just for leaving their house in the morning or doing other simple tasks or even for existing in general and that mindset is just wrong to me.

Again, if other people are reading this response please add to it because I’m about to fall asleep. Goodnight.

Sometimes, I’m happy to inspire people.

But that doesn’t mean I live to inspire you. 

Our purpose in life is not to benefit you.

We are people too.  Not an after-school special.

These are all good answers to the original question. I would like to add that another reason we tend not to like being called “inspirational” is that it is a phrase repeated so often, in exactly the same way in every situation that it has become a cliche. And as happens with other cliches, the phrase no longer has any real meaning. It comes off as something people say when they don’t know what else to say.

Dear abled writers #10

mattwritesthings:

Don’t cure disabilities in your stories. 

We don’t exist to be fixed, we are not broken. 

Not only won’t most of us live long enough to have the option of taking the magical cure-all pill, but it also creates and reinforces the narrative of disability being something that necessitates fixing. It doesn’t. 

That line of thinking leads to eugenics land.

feral-fae:

Can we please just stop saying “special needs” when we mean “accommodations that level the playing field so disabled peeps can get their shit done”? I don’t have special needs. I have reasonable needs. I don’t need you to make school and work easy for me. I don’t need easier tasks. I need to be provided with the tools to make tasks doable. That’s not “special.”
