Sharing Hope in the Face of Adversity — One Piece at a Time

How are We Teaching People to Treat Us Video Presentation

Posted by Second Chance to Live on July 27, 2014

Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to have you around my table. Several days ago I wrote an article to share some thing that I discovered. Today, I would like to share the article in video format. I create video presentations of my articles to share the information with individuals who learn through listening and watching. Below is an excerpt of the article.

“Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to have you around my table. In the past several articles and a video presentation, I have shared what I believe is limiting and undermining individuals who are presented with diagnosis’ and prognosis’. I went on to share, how couple d with a label and a societal stigmatization, a diagnosis’ and prognosis’ serve to place people in “boxes”, that often become their identities. I went on to share that the medical model, a label and a societal stigmatization create secondary dependencies and secondary gains that keep people trapped in the “box” through a combined belief system.

Through my recovery process, I began to realize that I needed to look beyond a diagnosis, prognosis and what I experienced as a result of societal stigmatization. With my awareness, I began to realize that I was not a diagnosis, a prognosis or a label. I began to realize that my identity lied in the road before me. I began to realize that how I treated myself and allowed other people to treat me strongly contributed to how I saw myself. With my awareness, I realized the I needed to examine the beliefs that I held about myself.”
