Eric’s Story: Having the Life You Want

By Guest Contributor, Eric Matthes

I am an Outreach & Advocacy Coordinator for The Arc of King County. My greatest accomplishment is realizing that I am more of a person, being humbled and responsible for my actions.

I understand what it feels like when you give yourself up for others and think less of yourself, as long you take good care of yourself and just know how brave and intelligent you want to be.

I came to the [conclusion] that letting people have choices and independence [means] having the life you want.
