Should I feel sorry for those with a handicap or disability?

Emphasize the Positive

There is no need to "feel sorry" for those with disabilities. In fact, by allowing yourself to pity them, you are only emphasizing the negativity of the handicap. Instead, focus on the traits that make them "who" they are, not "what" they are; their handicap does not "define" them.
