What people see as a curse, I see as a blessing and a gift.

I just want to set the record straight for some people out here.

I got the feeling that some of you people feel sorry for me because I have a stuttering “problem.” I am not ashamed of it. So many people are sympathetic towards it. Some people even pity me. They say if only she didn’t have this “problem,” she would be more successful in other stuff, like marriage. Others would like to stay away and not think about being around because they think people will talk about them and make them seem desperate if they are seen with me. I am not a charity case and I don’t need your sympathy or your pity. It doesn’t make you look desperate if you hang around me. It makes you look like a friend of mine.

I hate when people think there is something wrong with me just because I don’t speak fast enough or because I stutter.

What people see as a curse, I see as a blessing and a gift.

This is who I am. I am a stutterer. I love that I am a stutterer. If you don’t like it, I will show you the door. Either you will be patient with me and I will get all my words out or you will miss out on a wonderful person that I am. People need to start to get to know each other before they judge people. This “stuttering problem” will determine my real friends from my fake friends. I don’t have time for fake people and God knows that. So He gave me a gift that people will have to be patient with. And again, if you don’t like it, I will show you the door.

You guys are forgetting something. You don’t have to feel sorry for me because of that.

So many people spend their whole lives focusing on the negative. It’s only when they are about to die, they see the positive. She can’t speak fast, she must not be mentally stable or something. I can’t do this, otherwise I will get hurt. He doesn’t have any limbs, he can’t run or skip or jump or hug his family. It is self-defeating and it won’t get you anywhere, just focusing on the negative. This happens to most people. It is a waste of a good life.

There’s a saying by Alexander Graham Bell, the guy who is said to have invented the telephone.

“When one door closes, another door opens; but we so often look so long and regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the ones which open for us.”

God has given me many gifts, but two or three of them are these.

He has given me something else besides stuttering and that is the ability to see that my stuttering is not a problem at all and that I have the brains and the wisdom to even go farther than most people will ever be able to. The wisdom and the brains is a gift from God and I am grateful for the gift.

God takes away, but he also gives. I would rather focus on what God has given me than what He has taken away.

What people say that I can’t, I say I can.

I am not going to be one of those people who focus on the negative. I would rather say “I can” and do something than “I can’t” and do nothing. Say “I can’t” limits you and makes you feel trapped. Saying “I can” frees you and makes you do stuff that you would never normally do.

I will enjoy life and do what I love despite my stuttering. Trust me.

That’s what people will regret doing, is not living life, and not seeing what they can do. That’s why so many people in society are so smart, but they won’t go anywhere. They are not saying “I can”. There are so many able-bodied people in society. Why aren’t there more people enjoying life and being happy?

The ironic part about all this is that I actually feel sorry for those who feel sorry for me because they are too busy focusing on the negative and what I can’t do, that they can’t see the positive and what I can do, which is probably the same way they look and do things in their lives. That is the saddest part. They are too busy focusing on the negative.

It always seems that the most that are happy are those born with the least on their bodies.

So you guys don’t need to feel sorry for me. Trust me. There is really no need for that. 🙂
