Many years ago, I thought it was a damn shame that I was genetically cursed. I was so upset by it, that only my closest friends knew what I was going through. As the years went by and I learned to deal with it better, I realized that I wasn’t so different from everyone else around me. Sure, I went to the doctor’s office more than anyone my age, but they had their own set of “curses” to deal with. The cards you are dealt are random and that’s just like life.
I recently read a post by a woman who researched celebrities who did not deal well with one of the cards I was dealt. Very interesting to read. I know that I am lucky because there is so much more information out there now and doctors can do genetic tests. There are support groups for pretty much any ailment you might have and you meet some really nice people on there. I know that life doesn’t seem fair at times. I realize that wholeheartedly. The next step is to embrace that and move forward.
If you are surrounded by people who question things using the negative “shudda, wudda, cudda” mentality, then it is time to change your surroundings. Start each day with a positive and save your ace for when you really need to use it. Don’t forget to make time for yourself when you are having a particularly bad day. Give yourself something to look forward to so that your “curse” is easier to handle. Remember, we all have something we are dealing with, so accept it and move on.
