…that’s a word I’d use to describe myself. It’s taken me forever to realize this, but I’ve had a lot of growing up to do and can definitely see it in my personality.
When I was younger, I could never get myself to step out of that box. I guess it was always thought that there would be some sort of limit on me and what I could and couldn’t do. I can’t tell you how many times I used to hear things like “oh, she’s too short” or “oh, she just won’t see it that way; it’ll take her a while.”
It’s situations like that in which I would always feel the need to prove people wrong. To this day, I still feel the same, but for different reasons.
Having Turner’s syndrome has shown me time and time again that although some things in life are made more difficult because of it, I can’t let it all scare me. My mom’s the one who came up with the whole “living in a box” thing, and I couldn’t agree more 😊. I do hope younger TS gals can use that as a new skill. It’s important for everyone to learn, really. Don’t live life scared for the future is what it means. Focus on life now, and take everything as it comes. There’s a certain strength in believing that whatever happens happens for a reason.
