Dealing with your curse…

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.

“A lot of life is dealing with your curse, dealing with the cards you were given that aren’t so nice. Does it make you into a monster, or can you temper it in some way, or accept it and go in some other direction?” ~Wes Craven

One thought on “Dealing with your curse…

  1. One of the hardest things I will ever have to do is accept the parts of me that I don’t like. There are parts of me that make me proud, parts that make me laugh, parts that bring me joy and then there are the parts that I have to learn to love. Accepting things about youself is, at least for me, one of the hardest things I will ever do. I think that is what my journey is about, in some ways. Learning to accept myself as a whole. The good thing is that I have good friends who already do that, and that makes coming to terms with who you are so much easier. You have to learn to love you, even the parts you want to cut out and replace.
