Your Life Must Suck

Your Life Must Suck

Everyone has their own path. No two persons is the same – similar, but not the same.

When people get to know me and some of my “disabilities” it almost always follows with “That sucks.” or “Your life must suck.” It’s so hard for me to understand why anyone would ever say that to another person. We all have issues that we have to fight through everyday. Some people just don’t acknowledge them at all and instead pretend like they’re life is perfect.

This all comes from how every day going to work my co-workers will say “You look tired.” Then they would come up with crazy and sometimes very unprofessional reasons as to why I look tired or would possibly be tired. No matter how many times I explain to them that I am in fact not tired, but instead I suffer from a variety of sleeping disorders – I still get the comments. Once any of them actually take the time to listen, they almost always say “Your life must suck.”

Another thing that is hard for me is the darkness. I pretty much can not walk into an area of total darkness or even around it most of times. A sense of danger flows through me and I immediately and can’t move. People will laugh at that and it’s yet again… really hard for me to understand why anyone would laugh. I get that mostly children are scared of the dark. A lot of things carry from childhood quite often.

I personally believe the things we have to overcome every day is what makes us who we are. Some are more debilitating than others, but it’s who we are as an individual. I don’t think anyone’s life sucks just because they have to fight harder to do normal things. I think that’s makes them strong, courageous, and an inspiration to others. Sometimes those are the people who are the strongest.

    Ha-ha, thanks! I was definitely going for creepy here! That’s how the dark is to me. Not letting go of it’s grasp on me once I’m in or around it.
