Character is revealed through adversity

It appears that the qualities of my character which have been revealed through this particular instance of adversity are along the lines of emotional, stubborn, and unable/unwilling to follow instructions. (who, me??) I found it somewhat shocking that both my husband and trainer essentially said they were GLAD my foot was put in a cast. But half a dozen other people since then have responded in exactly the same way. My neighbor said it was good because if it was anything removable I'd take it off and be out running. I did not realize I was perceived this way. Enlightening! Will I change as a result? Mmmm, probably not. That would be way too conformist for me!
