“I was having a bad day” is not an excuse for abusive behavior.
It reflects a lack of self-control and a lack of concern for others.
Intense emotions are a product of circumstance. Caring about how they affect others is a choice.
Willpower requires the will to be respectful.

As a fierce advocate for disability justice, Rachel (who we met through @hollandbloorview) is an articulate, talented writer and storyteller. As a journalism major, she’s particularly passionate about the stories that are all too often left untold, reflecting her own experiences.
My Rachel looked so strong here, just a few weeks ago. She is really struggling now and it's dramatic. The rapid changes some of our kids face are devastating. ALL the good vibes please for this one ❤ twitter.com/HBKidsHospital…
