“Thank God that’s not me! I have nothing to complain about. I need to be more grateful.”
This is the internal conversation that goes on in most people’s minds when they cross paths with someone who is outwardly different, like someone who is wheelchair bound, a burn survivor, or a missing limb or two.
And then within 20 minutes max, your thoughts move back onto whatever you were obsessing over prior to that reality check, or maybe your go-to move when you are thinking uncomfortable thoughts is to start scrolling on your phone to distract yourself (this used to be mine).
The “different” person doesn’t get to check out and escape from their reality; they live with the stares, the questions, and the circumstances every minute of the day.
So there’s a choice to made when born outwardly different from the rest, either hide or embrace it. My guest on today’s episode has done both.
Rubi Skilton was born with one arm (and a half) as she says…she spent a fair majority of her life covering up her difference in sweatshirts, excess weight, and telling her self a boat load of lies. Rubi now helps others learn how to embrace their differences and share their story. She is a Podcast Coach and Confidence Activist.
