A profundity in one line.
This is exactly what I mean when one gets victimized by a victim. I have dealt with persons suffering from disability and some of them are extra-ordinarily selfish , that is how they got by. And those extra ordinarily gifted are generous to a fault ….Sadly world is blinded by physical disability and continues to favor the selfish , and try everything in the book and out of it to put down the generous gifted soul.

thank you so much. what you say is exactly my experience with some people with disability. i will give you a recent example. a student with disability was waiting outside the door to where i was to conduct my practical drama class. when i got there i couldn’t get in with my access tag and noticed that the door had been locked with the key, which was unusual. as i made my way to go round to check if the other entrances into the theatre would be open, i asked one of the other students to help wheel the student with disability through another access point i know would be easy for wheelchair access. when the other students got into the theatre space a few minutes later i noticed the student with disability wasn’t with them, when i enquired they said she refused to be carried through the last door into the corridor that would have brought them to the theatre space. when i went out to check for her, she was gone. moments later her mother who also works in the university came through the door she would’ve used to enter the building – she too is panicking. she says the girl is not taking her calls. a few minutes later, a furious looking personnel from the disability department walked in – again through the same door the girl should have come in to the theatre space. he is quite rough and damning in asking me why i didn’t do everything to facilitate her entry into the class. i said nothing in response. instead i asked the cleaning ladies why that door was locked and was told someone had tampered with the magnetic pad so they can gain access into the theatre space to sleep in it at night. anyway, i told them they should always have it open just before my class – they agreed, and we all went our separate ways. when the girl eventually came into the class that day, i noticed she was furious. i noticed too she was furious at me. i said nothing to her on this day. during a break in our next class, two days later i went to her to say i noticed she was furious and she said “yes. at you.” i asked her why and she said “because you didn’t do everything to make sure i got into the class.” meaning she was aware i told the other students to help her come into the class. i asked her if she would have come through that door if i had been there to physically carry her through it. she was quiet. then i told her, “sometimes, you need to realize that someone doesn’t have to be physically there with you to have made sure you wouldn’t want physically. if you expect everyone you need help from to be physically beside you, you don’t want help, but attention. and thats selfish.” i thank you for reading my work, and for sharing your experience with me.
