Up Close and Personal...
Hello and welcome to your Weleful Wednesday weekly boost of positive energy by yours truly - TSWFAITH.
What an incredible weekend - for many of us it was an "extra extended lunch break" due to the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday. You see weekends are merely "extended lunch breaks". By the time you do all need to do on Saturday... It's already Monday!!! Sunday is just a complete blur. Whatever you do - treat your weekends like gold. In this day and time treat all your days off, whenever they are, like gold.
I wanna take you back for a brief moment in time with me. Close your eyes and think about the days of Junior High School or for some of you it was known as Middle School. Now, I will say, overall it was an adventurous experience full of pretty cool and fond memories. However, it was truly a rough time for me in terms of staying confident and believing in my whole self. Of course, with lots of studying I was able to maintain my grades and still graduate with 3.0 or higher G.P.A. but my emotional status - that's a total different story.
This brilliant mighty force and campaign that exist today against bullying - oh how it was much needed back then too. From the time I was around three maybe four years old I developed a skin disorder known as eczema. It can be pretty pretty pretty bad. There were times that I had it just about all over my body including my hair, well on my scalp!!! But the flakes in my hair from the eczema looked like an awful case of dandruff. In Junior High this was not working - not at all. I was called every kind of scaly creepy ugly dusty crackling skinned reptile creature you could possibly imagine. There were days where I just wanted to stay inside - inside the house, inside the classroom, inside the counselors' office, inside the library, inside the girls restroom stall. I just wanted to stay inside!!!
I remember how during the summer I'd still wear turtle necks, long sleeve shirts, jeans, long pants in general to hide this disgusting part of my life. The cold part is - it was on my face too. It would get really bad sometimes under my eyes, around my ears, and on my forehead. Just way too uncomfortable and totally not Junior High "appearance" appropriate!!! On many occasions I would just go in a corner of the campus and cry. And there many days I'd get home and go in the bathroom and just cry. Man. That part of my life was awful!!!
Yet.............. Here's what I want you to know. Sometimes in life we go through these creepy stages either as young children, teenagers, young adults and yes, even as adults. For some of us, we've experience something pretty traumatic in every stage. What's important - is that I decided to channel all that negativity that was coming at me into my drive to continue to do well in school and although I was already a kind person -that experience- I allowed it to make me even kinder and even more compassionate towards those who were considered and treated as the "outcast".
I challenge us all that no matter where we are in our lives that we allow ourselves to pursue and fulfill our destiny of #GREATERNESS!!! No matter what take the negativity and channel it into something positive, something grand, something that's full of life.
And that's your "Up Close and Personal" Moment.
Until we meet again...
Stay Forever Blessed and Highly Favored

Thank you so much for sharing at such a personal level. I also had eczema as a child, as did several of my friends. Not an easy road. However, as with you it developed greater compassion. Have you ever considered writing a children's book about eczema? I think you should.
