My Story: The Only Issue Is That You Can See My Imperfections While Others Are Able To Hide Theirs Well

“I truly believe in the saying that life is what you make it. There was a time when I was too conscious of my handicap and felt that being hearing impaired by birth meant that God did not want me to lead a normal life like my sister. I think if it was not for my mother, I would have given up on life. She devoted all her time to me and made me believe that my handicap was nothing but a hurdle in achieving my life goals.

Today, I am a professional photographer capable enough to earn my own living. I did not let my hearing issue become a source of embarrassment for me; instead I wore it as a badge. I relish in the fact that it makes me special; because I am. My mother and sister are my strength who have always pushed me to be proud of myself and never let me drown in despair. Through the years I have met good people and bad, but the bad have overshadowed the good and I find it hard to trust anyone now.

There are those who have taken advantage of the fact that I could not hear and defend myself and those who have broken my spirit by leaving me because I was not perfect. But who is? The only issue is that you can see my imperfections while others are able to hide theirs well. I’m happy with my life and grateful to Allah for blessing me with a family that supports me, passion that drives me, ability to run my business, friends who stick around and a sense of peace that helps me sleep at night.

I might not be perfect or ‘normal’ but I am content with my life; not many can say that for themselves!”
