I’m not exactly sure why I used the R-Word, but I did. I even grew up with a Great Aunt who had Down syndrome — someone I loved very much — and yet I used that terrible word like it was no different than "apple" or "pretty". You'd think I would have known better — that I would have eliminated it from my vocabulary — but I didn’t. For over 34 years. 😔 I used to say it so much, that it still floats around in the back of my mind sometimes, to the point where I have to consciously correct myself from letting it slip. "Retarded”. Just typing it now makes my skin crawl. Click the Link in my Bio to read the whole blog post @outshinelabels or visit: outshinelabels.com/blogs/outshine-labels/the-r-word
