I believe everyone should have the opportunity for their voice to be heard. I use a trauma informed, person centred approach in counselling.

There is no reason why you should not be treated equally. Everyone deserves the same respect, consideration and benefits as everyone else.
Because we live in a society that values more people who can be beneficial to them.Only a few people will treat you eqully without taking in mind theor benefit.Everyone tries to "kill the different" , if you are unique you are not allowed to show what you've got except if it is on their own terms.
I see you're struggling with how you are being treated, can you tell me more about the occations of mistreatment?
Decent human beings will treat fellow human beings equally despite race, gender, sexuality, religion, or ability. This is what defines humanity. If you find yourself not getting equal treatment, there's something wrong with them.
You deserve to be treated equal to everyone else. Maybe we need to think about why we feel this way and what makes us think we aren't being treated equally.
There are some people in this world that think that they are better than everyone else. No one is really ever treated equally because that's the society we live in. Some people will have more privileges than others but fair doesn't always mean equal.
Why should we take care of others. Respect yourself and respect others. May be that's the only way to teach others.
Unfortunately, the world doesn't work that way. We often learn the hard way in finding out things are unfair - the best we can to from our part is to try and treat people fairly and treat them how we want to be treated.
Somehow, this is life. Some are treated really well, although they don't deserve it, and others do all the good but don't get any good treatment or anything in return. However, a fact I'm pretty sure of is that everyone has their ups and downs, and even the ones who are treated equally will one day feel the same as you. So, basically, this is life.
I cannot be treated equally because i still struggle with seeing myself as good, valuable and equal person. I need to learn myself and stand up for myself.
Society isn't fair, though we all wish it were. Sadly, no one gets treated fairly. We all want whats best for us, yet we aren't willing to see that maybe what's best for us is to treat everyone the same. Many people say they believe in equality... if we were all equal, why would we have world leaders? If we were all equal, we would not need world leaders. However, without world leaders, we would not be able to live due to crime etc. In a society, I guess we need people of higher standards, and more privileges. It sucks, I know.
