As much as I felt scared of the pain and a life filled with it, I was also terrified of facing it...of having to do the work it would take to get me through it. I didn't think I was strong enough.
Well you know what? I didn't give myself enough credit. I was strong enough...I just didn't believe it...and I am strong enough now...and even though I'm still terrified...I'm doing it anyway.
I'm learning each day to take care of my needs, to change my thoughts, and to be as active in my life as I possibly can each and every day. I'm learning to live beyond my pain and I'm making new memories. And I'm learning to accept myself, my limits and even my pain too...I'm still terrified but I'm doing it anyway.
take good care of you okay?
