I’ve not experienced the social pain of strabismus that so many have known. Most of my life, I could control my eye drifts to some degree. But I hear many stories from people who are hurting because they feel so rejected.
I received a comment today from an adult who is having an especially hard time with self esteem and rejection. She had posted to an instructional page in this blog. I’m creating this new post and will move her comment to this post instead. I will let her know where I’ve moved it.
For those who don’t have turned eyes, I encourage you to make a special effort to reach out when you see someone who does. These people are precious. I wish I had better answers of how to help. But I think just knowing you accept them for who they are, being a friend to them, and inviting them into your life and social events, will go a long way.
Comments are welcome.
