We all have our life hurdles, challenges, issues. I wonder why we call them negative names? Suppose they aren’t challenges, but instead they are experiences, events, characteristics of a life lived.
When we look at what is happening to us, it is important to not fall into the victim role. Yes, I have a chronic illness, but I have it, it doesn’t control me. I live with it present in my life. That’s my life. It’s a painful tiring existence, yes. And I think about it all the time. I’m trying hard to control it and pretty much cover it up every day, but that is what I choose to do about the situation I have. I keep living the best way I can.
No illness is going to stop me being, doing, going, experiencing, loving, risking, challenging.
We all have things in our lives. You know the sorts of things I mean… health problems, sick relatives, loss of jobs, extremely sad losses of parents and children, disappointments, tensions, unexpected bumps and spills, events that cause us to question who we are and what the hell we are doing.
It’s like a lucky dip and we are all in the draw.
