I wish I was care free like the people at the Day Centre

I attend for people with intellectual disabilities. Most people there have more severe intellectual disabilities than me and I’m a little bit jealous of them because they are child like and care free with out any worries and full of happiness. Most have no awareness so nothing bothers them. They get cared for and looked after well.

On the other hand I’m happy to be mentally aware but I have a lot of suffering. I want to be care free,

Is that bad to think that way?


I would think they must go through some dark moments too. Although they always seem to be happy. IDK, I don’t think being intellectually disabled is a good thing or something to be jealous of. They can’t escape all the harsh realities of life.


This is incredibly insulting to people that are intellectually disabled. No awareness? Check yourself.
