Broken & Misconceptions | Abby’s Reflections 19
“Society has a tendency to look at people with visible disabilities as broken. Yet we look at people with invisible disabilities with an undue amount of skepticism. The real issue is our broken society. Equal access to human rights can only happen by breaking down visible and invisible barriers.”
It’s an injustice to use broad brush strokes to paint people without knowing their full story. Projecting fear and pity onto others from our limited understanding can hurt and devalue people.
Here at Bold Blind Beauty, we believe we can improve humanity by changing the way we perceive one another. The way we achieve this goal is starting with empathy, genuine respect, and kindness.
There are ‘whole’ people living with disabilities who are positive, passionate and live their lives with purpose. There are also ‘broken’ people living without disabilities who are negative, apathetic and cannot find joy in life.
