Okay this is my speech for the day because I am just so moved to do so..I posted this last night on a couple of my pages, and got little response.
They are REactive. And so often I hear "I cant, it hurts, you have no idea..." And I get it. I of all people get it. But you have to be proactive if you want to have success. Especially us with illness. Quit smoking, skip that soda, don't let people get you angry, learn to let it go and take your emotional and mental health into just as much consideration as you would a child who fell off a bike.If it hurts don't give up just do less, do it more slowly or less often, but it will ALWAYS hurt if you don't try at all. Do you need those oreos? Do you have to get revenge? Do you have to turn your stomach over things you cannot control? Not really. Just realize for everything you do there is a consequence. Weather its an extra 3 pounds, a flare, prolonging an argument with someone, stiff neck or a missed appointment and now you have fee's that you cant afford to pay...there are physical reactions in your body and you need to do whats best for your body. Make the best decision for you and be happy with it. Use your ability for independent thinking and use those emotions to better yourself. Don't take on the negative energy from those around you. Release it back to them.YOU HAVE TO. you owe it to yourself. So walk 5 minutes, stop sucking down the diet soda by gallon, read about emotional healing, take a yoga class, empower yourself to get a new doctor, make that call you have dreading to make, forgive yourself and don't expect perfection, ......DO WHAT EVER it take s to move FORWARD! DO NOT GET STUCK!! YOU ARE NOT YOUR ILLNESS!! YOU ARE SO MUCH MORE!!
