What has created the person you are today?
All daily choices you made.
All people you meet that affect your story.
All places you visited.
Schools you have gone
Feelings you received, happy, angry, hopeful, sorry …
Smells you experienced
And much much else has made you who you are today.
It is said that injustice makes you strong and happiness makes life worth living. We must have both. Up and downs create dynamics. An ostopless rolling wheel.
I had a good life in Sweden, but an even better life in Thailand.
I’ve been struggling all my life:
The right to go to a regular school class
Right to get a job
The right to have food at any restaurant I want
The right to follow my passion without anyone getting into it
The right to live on the same conditions that all people should have
There has been so much obstacle in my life that I do not even think it could be any other way.
When I’m with people and doing things out in town, almost nobody talks to me, but turns to the person I’m with. Sometimes, or next always, they say to my friend: What should he eat, and I’m sitting next to it.
You can not explain this oppression. It’s there, every second of my life, as soon as I leave my home. What I mean is that in every meeting with a person I really try to get a balance to be treated like anybody. To bridge so the person I meet gets the opportunity to treat me like any other person they meet.
With new friends, we always end up in a conversation after a time of friendship. 3 months or one year. But there always comes a point where the friend / man wants to express his friendship with words like:
I have never seen you as handicapped or CP-injured.
There will be a theoretical discussion about disabilities, difficultys.
Then the friendship drops. I’m really trying to build on friendship, but it’s like there’s an ocean in between us. And no ships in the world can break this distance. Friendship survives some time, but my world’s interpretation becomes insane. Because one can not explain one with another life’s life. It has to be lived and it is not enough to walk 1000 km in another’s shoes to understand.
Nor is it meant to be able to understand other people. The purpose of life, according to me, is to discover as many pages of yourself as possible so you can get the maximum recovery of yourself.
I have the privilege of being able to talk to many amazing people. There are so many people out there who make such incredible things and influences in the world.
