For those with one arm or a "difference" you know what I am talking about when I say no matter where you go people will always stare. As a child i ignored it and did not notice as much, but as I grow older the more I notice it. It can sometimes be very annoying but I never say anything because I believe it is a good thing for people to see someone with a difference so that if they ever see someone like me again they will not question it. So the real question is what should you do when someone is staring?
1. You can give them a nice smile and just flaunt your difference because it is beautiful.
2. If they do not stop nicely go up to them and ask if they want to know more about it.
3. Just ignore the stares.
Something I never realized was how different I actually do look from others around me. I cannot see this in my everyday life because I am so use to the fact that I have one arm, but when i see pictures of myself or a video I see what others around me see and it allows me to understand why they stare. What we need to understand is that making a funny face to the people who stare at us or giving them a bad look will not solve anything but it will make people judge you even more.
Always Remember: Our differences make us who we are today and each person is beautiful so flaunt your differences. For people who are missing an arm like me, don't hide your little arm in public, roll up your sleeve and allow people to see how truly beautiful you are inside and out. Love your little arm!
Quote of the day:
~ Being DIFFERENT is one of the most beautiful things on earth. ~
Well known for her love for Jesus, coffee, and having one arm. Sarah share's stories in her life in hope to help others. She wants you to know that,
"Our differences do not define who we are but are a part of the story that God has written for our lives."
Sarah says, " I hope that I can be someone to relate to in a world of untold real stories. Everything I write is from my heart and real."
"We are all created imperfectly perfect by God, we should be proud of our imperfections and differences, they make us who we are today but do not define us, know that you are beautiful and remind yourself of this everyday."
