The quote I choose is "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." -Friedrich Nietszche. I took this quote personally because I have been through a lot of difficult times in my life but they have made me a better person.
From 7th grade to my freshman year of high school, I had 4 ankle surgeries, many late night emergency room visits, and a lot of medical tests. Going through this painful time, I am a much stronger person now than I ever was. I learned that if you want something to get better, you need to stick up to the person who is causing all of this pain even if it is a doctor.
Another event that affected me was my senior year of two family members past away. My grandmother passed in October and my uncle, on the same side, passed exactly 2 months later. After all I the crying and being sad all the time, I realized that they are in a better place and that missing them won’t change anything.
The last event is one that is still affecting me today is being diagnosed with celiac disease. The rode to this disease was long and very painful. It took two years, 6 doctors, and many, many tests and medications. I still have long term effects from some of the medications and now I have to live with this disease. This disease made me change everything I eat and made life very hard.
All the events have affected me in negative ways but all had positive outcomes. With my ankle surgeries, I work very hard now because at the time, I couldn’t walk at all for a whole year and I hate it so I pushed myself all the time so I could walk and eventually run. I pushed myself daily in everything I do like school work and even organizations I participate in so I will do my best in everything I do. With Celiac Disease, I learned even with hard times, you can finally get an answer even if it is not a positive answer. The negatives can teach you more than the positive.
