How do you feel when someone wants to open the Door for you? Yes! or NO!
So I thought this would be a fun topic to discuss. Every now and then someone will offer to get the door for me or to help me with something when I am very capable of doing it. and I truly don't believe that people have malice when doing this. I like most who are independent hate to have help from anyone but when its a stranger and they are asking nicely why not let them do the good deed for the day? I often get upset with friends who say they are belligerent towards people who ask them if they need help. and I say we have to always assume that others without disabilities are not aware of how things make us feel. So next time someone asks I say why not let them help you and if you truly don't want the help then be nice about letting them know you are Ok and would prefer to do it yourself but please don't yell or assume they are trying to insult you.

What is your take on this Issue?

Do you feel like they are trying to insult you? How does it make you feel?

As a person who is not disabled, please know that I hold the door for everyone regardless of their level of ability. It’s just how I was raised;  I would assume that that is the same for most people. No one should feel that the door is being held for them because the other person thinks that they are not capable of doing it on their own. also, if you ever need assistance from anyone don’t be afraid to ask, a lot of people are not familiar with the needs of those who are disabled and would gladly help them out; they just need to be made aware of the need.
