You are….you

You are….you….

You are not less than you….because of your illness

You are not less than you….because of your disability

You are not less than you… because you use a wheelchair

You are not less than you….because you are bedbound

You are not less than you….because you are dependent

You are not less than you….because you are not able to walk

You are not less than you….because you are not able to do activities on your own

You are not less than you….because you are not able to work

You are not less than you….because you are not able to continue the job

You are not less than you….because you are not able to study

You are not less than you….because you are not able to continue the education

You are not less than you….because you are sitting idle at your home

You are not less than you….because you are not supporting your family financially

Remember,

You are….you

You are….you….

With or without disability

Embrace the strength of your will power

You are more than….your illness

You are more than….your disability

You are more than….what do you think about yourself

Your disability shouldn't stop you from what you want to become

Your disability shouldn't stop you from what you want to achieve

You can defeat your disability

You can defeat your fate

Nothing will stop you to reach and succeed in your life

Your abilities with disability are an inspiration for us always

You are….you

You are….you….

You are Bigger….Stronger….Powerful….than your disability

Look at your strengths, not your weakness

Identify your strengths, act accordingly

Acknowledge you have this illness

Start accepting it and moving on…

Learn how to live with disability

Learn how to be mindful

Learn how to seek help whenever, wherever requires

Learn how to identify your negative thoughts

Learn how to distract your negative thoughts

Be empathetic to yourself

It's okay to be not okay at times…

You are loved as how you are

You are beautiful as how you are…

We all are with you

We all are together in this battle…

You are worthy of love

You are worthy of care

You are worthy of your rights…

We need your love,

We need your care,

We need your presence,

We need your participation…

You are….you

You are….you….
