You are NOT "less"
I can't understand people who look down on others for things mostly outside of their control. I can't stand to see it, and will always stand up against it. I was raised by upper middle class parents and never wanted for a thing growing up. I had a strong work ethic. I was motivated, and had the right connections. Then my body decided that wasn't the life for me. I fought that for as long as I could. Much of that time, in denial about what was happening, and further hurting myself, pushing as hard as possible. All because I knew how people felt about people like me. Since having to accept my reality- I have learned that those worries aren't what is important. My life, and being alive for my children is what matters. No amount of money will replace their mother if I die trying to make it. I had to "make a choice" that wasn't really any choice at all. This happens often, in different scenarios. We get labeled even though we have no reason to be, or those labels are judged when they shouldn't be. I choose to be better than that and recognize reality.
