So, let me ask you a question:
When you set out to do something, who’s approval are you looking for?
The easy answer should be me, myself, and I.
I know I’ve said we, as crips’re always, at least, feeling like we have to prove ourselves to someone…but, do we really?
At the end of the day, all anyone has to do is make happen whatever they set out to do to the best of their abilities. If it’s an incremental thing, stick with it, it’ll get done.
When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see a crip dreamer, or do you see a reality-maker? Do you see through a warped, funhouse mirror, or do you see clear and forever?
When it’s time for you to cash in your cards, will you see your accomplishments or ghosts of what could’ve been with those you tried to please, mocking you?
Do you for you.
Be good to each other.
