My handicap is part of me because I have had to make peace with it.  And in doing so, I’ve made peace with the less obvious handicaps of other people, like resentment, prejudice, hate.
—  Ginger Hutton

Living with an illness — whether our own or a loved one’s — has taught us that handicaps are not always physical.  We begin to understand fear is handicapping, prejudice is handicapping, inaccessibility to the community is handicapping.

More and more we are able to make peace with our own limitations and those of others, and as we do this we gain insight into which of them we have to accept and which we don’t.  We recognize there are some limitations we can do something about and others we must accept for the sake of our serenity.

The more tolerant I am, the less limited I become.
