Some people encounter many obstacles in life and tend to beat up themselves about it. I used to be one these persons. When I was diagnosed with scoliosis, I saw myself differently. I no longer saw myself as being beautiful, when i looked in the mirror all i could see was the curvature of my back. I constantly asked God why me? why did I have to get it? Other girls didn't have it so why should I. It reached to a point where I didn't want to be around people because I thought all they saw was my back. However all of these thoughts later left my mind when I was watching TV and a program came on about kids with different kinds of illnesses. By the end of the program, I was in tears, I was in tears because I was sickened by my own ungratefulness. Many persons have to roam the earth with their own burdens to carry, some are obvious while other you couldn't tell unless that individual confided in you their circumstances. Sometimes all we need to do is to be thankful that whatever illness/ deformity we have, it isn't as bad as what others undergo. I'm not saying we are going to be happy that we have a certain illness but at least be grateful that we don't have something worse. God doesn't give us anything we cannot handle, there is always a reason behind his mischief. God is an on time God and his plans will always surface eventually, it's up to you to be patient and wait on him. Whatever illness/ deformity one may have, it is a part of his plan, just talk to him and you'll figure it out
