One question that upsets me is when a complete stranger asks me why I’m limping. I’ll never understand the intention behind someone who doesn’t know me asking that question. While it may seem innocent to them, it hurts me.
When I tell them I have one leg shorter than the other which I don’t bother to tell them is a result of an injury, they apologize. I’m not sure what they’re apologizing for, but I’m thinking what was the point of asking me that question? Would you ask someone with a disability why they need a wheelchair, a little person why they’re little or someone with cerebral palsey why they’re limping? I’m guessing not so why would you ask me?
It’s hard enough living with a physical limitation much less being reminded about it constantly by strangers. I swear I’m going wear a sign that says “I limp and it’s none of your business why.” Sorry! I had to get that off my chest because five people asked me this yesterday. I feel much better now!
Let’s get on to better things, like seeing what I’ve been eating lately! If you’re new to Skinny Fitalicious, What I Ate Wednesday is a post I do every week showcasing my meals from one day. It’s motivational to see what other people eat in their day and also inspires me to eat balanced and to continue creating more delicious recipes for you!
