Words from a Self-Advocate: Susie Stufflebam

This week we have some encouraging words from

Susie was a recipient of the Self-Advocate of the Year Award in 2017!

Susie, who explains how she faces life’s challenges. Here is her passage, titled “Different Types of Advice:”

Sometimes it’s hard to deal with changes and to face challenges in your life with anything that is close to you. I have a hard time dealing with changes and challenges myself. I try to push myself to do some challenges by starting with small & medium levels. Sometimes there are things that I can’t handle, but I listen to some advice from friends and family that are close to my heart. Don’t give up on yourself, nothing else matters as long as you have friends. Just keep your head up high & make a change. When you can’t control what’s happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what’s happening. That is where your power is! Never let yourself get too comfortable. Seek challenges, push & ignore what others think.

Thank you for the inspiration Susie; these are great words to help during hard times!
