This I believe

This I believe

A Story by Missy Moooooo

   I believe that disability is not a reason for failure. I have a disability, my whole life I blamed everyone for my issues. It wasn’t fair, so I just let others feel like it was their fault. I never tried in school I told my mom that I was not worth it. But in the end I know that I am able to exceed all and be true to myself. Learning is more important than hearing is...I am not a failure because I do not hear well. I am a winner because I know that I have a disability and I have chosen to rise above it. I remember the first day I received my first pair of hearing aids. I am who I was made to be, and just because of my disability this does not limit me from achieving my dreams of being a Lawyer. I remember hearing the beautiful whispering sound of the Air dancing through the Air Conditioner, the sound the tires make when the car moves, and even the light humming of a cars engine all for the first time in my life. I had no clue how I got to hear these new sounds, but it was a blessing. I had no idea that these sounds were real, and it was hard to focus on my life at first. I hated wearing them because I would get headaches or people would laugh at me in school. I never understood why I had extra help in school and I personally blamed my parents for making me this way. With many years of anger and frustration I gave into my parents helping me out. To many people have laughed at me and have asked me why I needed these devices in my ears. I just looked at them and smiled stating that these things are what allow me to hear, without them I would not hear. I would not listen to what they’re saying. So long story short, these little expensive devices are what saved my life. My disability does not make me automatically dumb, I am strong-willed and as powerful as I may be. I know that I can do whatever I set my mind to, just because I do not hear as well as hearing people do does not limit me to anything. Sure at times it is hard to hear and hearing aid batteries are quite expensive; it is still a blessing to have the capability to have these hearing aids. I believe that society should not limit people to certain jobs solely because people like me cannot hear. Even now I find it weird to hear what I can: the flopping of ones flip-flop, or perhaps the soft marvelous purrs of a cat, but I know that this is how I was made. I was made to learn how to hear without exactly hearing. I believe I can rise above this idea that society has against disability.
