“Where did you get that part of your personality?”
“Which part of my personality?”
“That fiery part of your personality. Where did it come from? I mean for someone who grew up small and sick you could have just been small and meek, but you didn’t, you became strong and fiery. So where did it come from? Your mom or dad?”
I was finally described in the same way I see myself. I’ve always considered myself strong and fiery, but I’ve never been described it because most people don’t see past my medical and physical problems. Though once people get to know me they realize that I’m not just my disability, I’m so much more. Now that someone finally sees me like I see myself I have confirmation that I really am what I think I am, strong, stubborn, fiery, & independent.
“I don’t know. Maybe my mom. I thought it just came from me.”
Either way, I’m smiling like I’ve never smiled before.
