It does, in a way. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis when I was 2; I am 25 now. For the first decade of my life I was in a lot of physical pain(still am and has gotten worse) and emotional pain. Mainly because people made fun of me and my disability. About a year later I noticed something though. Because of my disability I always had to work harder for things.
So because of that I gained a good work ethic while the people who made fun of me didn't know what work ethic was and basically flunked out of high school. I was also able to attend a school for disabled people where I met my closest friend.
Yes, pain does make sense. It just takes awhile to see why.
Thanks, I appreciate that. Please don't pity me or feel sympathy for me. It has always made me feel bad for some reason. I guess because it slightly makes me feel like I am being a burden on people. I appreciate it though. Thank you again.
