In brief: Know yourself.
You, not the public, control you.
Why one is disabled & how they view disability fuels their emotional response. Disabled at birth, accidentally, a severe illness or injury, a psychiatric disorder? Can you accept it and overcome enough of its limitations to live a good life? Do you know if the disabilty is justified or is not? Guilt, shame and hopelessness are hard but not impossible to overcome.
