We all know of deceptive appearances. Plato, “way back when” — described the illusion of the three towers — where, when one stands in a given place, it merely looks like one tower; from another, two with a shadow of a third, etc.
Normalcy is like that, as well. We live in tumultuous times — of economic hardship; a pandemic which continues to spread and wreak havoc upon lives, health and well-being of individuals and families throughout; of political turmoil and upheaval; of daily challenges and obstacles.
Yet, in the face of it all, we continue to try and maintain a facade and appearance of normalcy. It is often a struggle. We know that behind the single appearance of a tower, there are still three towers.
When a Federal or Postal employee becomes disabled, he or she must still maintain that appearance of normalcy’s facade. There comes a time, however, when the struggle of normalcy’s facade must give in to the reality that one cannot any longer continue in the same fashion, the same mode, the same daily toil or struggle.
When that point arrives, contact an attorney who specializes in Federal Disability Retirement Law and begin the process of stopping the struggle of normalcy’s facade, and instead face the reality of a different but hopeful future.
