Help Isay Walk Again

Update posted by Maria Clariza Anero On Jul 13, 2019

I felt a little sad earlier. It's been a rough day for me at work and outside of work in general.

I have several dissatisfaction ratings due to tech issue (auto hung up) which made a little frustrated but get over with it in a matter of minutes 😂. (Mga 2minutes)

As they say, "you can't change what has happened but you can change how you want to move forward."

And sometimes, the only thing we need to tell ourselves is that "IT IS OKAY".

All we need to do is give ourselves time.

I can still do better tomorrow.

But just to let out my frustration, for five years being on crutches, I was again reminded by a lady in her 40's that I am not "normal". T'was just a seat assigned for pwd's that she refused to give up for me just because she's the one who got in first. But all along, all she needed to do was to move to her right. "Maluwag pa po. " No need to talk roughly especially towards my father.

But then, I understand. I chose not to say anything. 1. Because I'm not feeling well because of my slight fever, colds and asthma. 2. Because, I don't want my father get into trouble just because of me. So, even though I felt like I'm about to be late, I just chose to transfer to the next jeepney on the terminal. (Kahit tatlo palang yung nakaupo dun sa jeep sa harap)

So, I just thought of the reasons that maybe the lady was tired. Maybe she's not feeling good as well, and a lot of other "maybes". I chose to understand her. I felt low for a moment, thinking that if I'm not like this, this will not even happen.

It was indeed not a good day for me, but then I chose to move forward. Okay na ako.

We all have our good and bad days anyways.

But at the end of the day, it will be up to you which ones you choose to live for. Will you choose to live up to the bad days or to the good days?

The only days that will matter are those days where you smile wholeheartedly, and be proud of yourself and your journey because amidst of all those bad days, you're still here. I AM STILL HERE. And it moulded the person that I AM today. A warrior, a fighter.

But please also remember that not everyone has a “safe space” around them to feel like they can reach out for help and be more understanding towards others. Some people are brought up to think something is wrong with them if they have and/or suffering from DEPRESSION. Remind people that this is far from the truth and help them in any way possible.

Please, always be careful with the words you say towards others. We're all unaware of what they're going through.

Good night! :)

P. S. This is how I sit in a public vehicle (jeepney) on my way to work/on my way home from work.

This is how I walk without crutches (if my knee pain is only 6/10.)
