Excelling as a special needs adult can be difficult for people who do have a genuine handicap. Many adults with special needs feel that they stand out in a crowd. One of the most important things you can do is to accept that you are different and that you will need help from time to time.
Accepting help is not easy. Needless to say, all of us want to live independent lives. But, there are times when we all have to accept that we need help. It is only when we have accepted that, we can move on and improve our lives.
When you have come to accept your life as it is, you can start to think about the things that you are good at. When you have identified what you can do, you can put the relevant skills into place and excel at what you do. For instance, instead of becoming a fantastic athlete, you may instead become a great writer or artist.
Reaching for the stars is something that we can all do, but we have to realize that there are many ways of getting to the stars.
