Thank you for sparing us the inevitable feelings of social awkwardness that we would both be forced to feel if you were to ever realize that my problems are frequently worse than yours.

Due to a speech impediment I developed as a child, for many years I was unable to say the words 'thank you' without gnawing on someone's leg. However, after I got over my subconscious fear of invisible silent Qs in words, I found I was finally able to express gratitude verbally. I'd be thanking people all the the time if it wasn't such a sign of weakness.
