Sorry if I ramble on here but I thought I got a rather sharp shock to the system which in turn has led me to believe it was a moment of clarity. I was in Tescos on my lunch break moping around just trying to kill some time and trying and find something vaguely appetising to eat when I say somebody in a wheelchair with what looked liked Parkinson’s, who looked vaguely familiar. I then realised that he used to be in the same class as me in secondary school (I’m 21 btw). I never really knew him too well, he was quite reserved never making a scene and just generally happy to just get on with his work. I started talking to him and sure enough he recognised me. It turns out that after a bad accident that left him in a coma for 2 weeks, after which he has developed Parkinson’s. It horrified me to see somebody my own age in this kind of state, unable to live any kind of normal life, where even seemingly mundane tasks are daily battles. Yet despite this he was out shopping by himself, determined to get on with his life, he refused my offer of any aid even using the self-serving checkouts despite not being able to even hold the money straight. Before today I had always complaining about how things are unfair in my life, convinced that I had things hard and generally feeling sorry for myself (sound familiar?) although I was always told that there are people far worse off than myself out there it never really sunk in. My problems are NOTHING compared to so many people out there. They would give anything to be in my shoes, a decent enough job (sure I hate it but so what) a roof over my head. A fully working body (I hope) and a family that loves me. Sure I have my problems but nothing is perfect and sooner we all realise this the better off we will all be. Anyway sorry to ramble on (I did warn you) but I thought I would share this with you guys. Have a good day, I know I will.
