“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.”-Charles R. Swindoll
No one said this would be easy. It’s hard trying to come to terms with things that are hard to swallow. No one wants to accept that crappy things happen to them but that’s life.
Someone once told me “life’s fair because it’s unfair to everyone” I don’t think I understood that until I was diagnosed for the second time.
I’ve decided that you couldn’t possibly live a complete happy life, if you never experience pain. The emotions that are hard to bare are the ones that make us stronger. They make us appreciate life a little extra. The small things seem to have more meaning than they did before.
It might be hard to believe, but sometimes I think I’m happier now than I was 6 months ago.
Perhaps what I’m trying to say is that we should channel all the negative things in our lives, in order to appreciate the positive things.
Use your emotions wisely; we have them for a reason
