Should we talk about our disabilities with others, or avoid revealing or mentioning them?

You should speak, the fact is embrace ourself and speak up no need to think much about it, what others think is not ur business


Even I've found this question lingering in my head many times.

While I agree with others that we should accept our Disability with Pride. In my early years of career; I often found my team members showing sympathy to me (rather than Empthy), which none of us one wants.

I usually disclose my disability to my immediate superior, but conceal it with my team members until I gain their respect (because of my technical skills or work).

Once I have their respect, I start disclosing this to them. That ensures that people respect me more than showing me Sympathy.

PS: I work with with diverse teams, so the fact that I am on wheelchair can easily be concealed (without much effort).


So true...when I joined i accept myself and then told to others about me and the respect it .. however some of the colleagues never understand our feelings...


Yes i always accept the way I am ...there is no harm to accept it. but i saw people don't want to let public know.

I’m a designer in the planning/landscape architecture dept. of a CE firm. Extremely frustrated that after 4+ years and multiple asks, I’m not getting the in-field construction experience I’ve asked for. I know that my designs could be better if I could see how things are actually built but I get slapped in the face with “I need you in the office designing/drafting” or “there’s no budget to have you go out” and then sends an intern to inspect instead. I’m 5 yrs out of college. Any advice?

I recently received an offer from a big 4 company. I am very happy with where I am currently working. I’m unsure if I should take it. I feel valued at my firm and I am not micromanaged. There are many benefits to staying however, it’s a big 4.. feels like a sin to turn it down.

The main reason I feel inclined to take it is for the name and the exposure. Can I have some thoughts on what you would do in this situation?
