That I think it's important for everybody to get past is that you don't let the anger and resentment destroy you. How you do that is a lot more difficult. I don't know if there's any way that you can tell another person how to get over it, other than it only hurts you. I see a lot people with disabilities, especially those that have been in some kind of accident, or injury or whatever, that want to blame, and our society feeds into that, you know, you need to sue this person, or you need to get what is due to you and it perpetuates this notion that you are not responsible, someone else is, and that you need to blame them. And if you let yourself get so pulled into that that, you never can get out, it doesn't hurt anyone but yourself. You have to allow yourself to accept that accidents happen, tragedy happens and then you get past it. What happens to you is not really as important as how you deal with it.
