Most Helpful Guy
I'm a very positive person and I agree with @Jaye234 that being this way just makes everything better and easier.
You see, though I was born in one of the safest, richest and cleanest countries in the world, my life wasn't always easy. I was born almost completely blind on both eyes and this disability has caused many struggles for me. Starting from early childhood, I had to go to tons of doctor's and hospital appointments all the time, I had lots of surgeries and of course things like school or even finding friends or finding a girlfriend were also much harder for me than for people with good eyes. However, I strongly believe that my cheerful and positive attitude towards life has made all these struggles much more bearable. I believe that even the worst experiences have a good thing about them - you just need to be open-minded enough to see it. I also strongly believe that even the worst experiences can teach us something valuable. This way, I am capable of viewing my disability not only as an impairment (which it naturally is) but also as a great chance. My girlfriend frequently tells me that my very blindness is probably the most important reason she fell in love with me. What she means by this is that many of my best character traits are directly related to my disability. For example that I'm very hard-working (because I always had to be in order to keep up with others), or that I'm very positive (because that has always made my life much easier) or that I'm a very sweet, considerate and understanding guy (because I want other people to be that way towards me too).
My girlfriend tends to be more of a pessimist and I think it really lifts her spirits a great deal to have me around in tough situations, telling her something like "but look sweetheart, why don't you look at it this way..." :-).3
