This is true for everyone, but I find it fits perfectly for those who have special needs, and their families. Take a moment to read, it’s very uplifting. –
You Are A Fighter
Sometimes you have an actual person to battle against- a specialist, a teacher, an administrator, an insensitive family member, a playground bully, your own stubborn child.
Sometimes your opponent is less concrete- a disease, a disability, a milestone that keeps moving away or a skill your child can’t seem to master.
And sometimes you end up fighting against yourself- subduing your fears, conquering your doubts, attacking your insecurities.
Regardless of the foe, you’re in it to win it. Surrender is not an option.
You may negotiate and agree to a treaty, or observe a cease-fire, or you may scorch the Earth and take no prisoners, but you’ll fight the good fight as long as there is any fight left in you-
and then you’ll fight some more.
