Michela Marzano (Italy) - The Fragilities and the DisabilitiesNone of us can ignore the finitude of the human condition. And from the multiple fragility that sometimes emerge and are imposed when it is least expected. Of course, nobody likes to realize their vulnerability. Not only the physical one, the one that sometimes forces us to stop because our body, weakened or sick, can no longer keep up with it. But also and above all the existential one, that is the fragility of our feeling inadequate with respect to the expectations that others, and sometimes even ourselves, have towards us. How can we accept not being exactly what we wanted to be? How to make peace with one's anxieties and fears? The real problem of fragility - and of the extreme fragility that is encountered when living with a disability - is that it forces us to confront ourselves with otherness. Not only the otherness of others, but also and above all our otherness. Because despite all the efforts we can make, we are and we will always be "other" with respect to that ideal image of ourselves that we have built since childhood. It is so. We can't do anything about it. If not slowly learning to accept this otherness and to accept our inadequacy. What then is nothing more than the acceptance of the fact that we can never be or have everything. In each of us there is a fracture, an ontological lack to use the words of Jacques Lacan. This is what makes our frailties sometimes unbearable. And yet it is precisely thanks to this lack that we can then open ourselves to desire and joy. This is why it is precisely when we welcome our frailties that, paradoxically, we also become stronger.
