*Please remember that this is just my personal opinion.*
While binge watching Glee the last few days, something stuck out to me. Artie, a high school student who is in a wheelchair keeps having the same things happen to him over and over.
People are very rude to him, are just acting interested in him because they want something from him without thinking how much it hurts him or because they think they can gain popularity and make themselves look good to the world. Or in this case, to other high school students.
Since my multiple diagnoses in 2012, I have started noticing the latter happening. To me, as well as others.
While I will always try and believe the best of people because that’s how I have been all my life, I’m seeing more and more people who help others like me who are Differently-abled because it makes them look good to the world. Because they see something they can gain.
I do not say any of this to be rude. Me, as well as others in the Spoonie community have been noticing this happening more and more.
Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of people who help others because they genuinely care. There just seems to be more and more people popping up who just want to be rewarded for doing what most people do out of the kindness of their hearts.
