This is why I don’t fight it

Aug 23, 2017 8:39 AM

I have come to accept that I have fibromyalgia for a reason. The more I tried to pretend I didn’t have it or fought it, the worse I felt. Every day I’m working on myself and finding meaning, which I believe will help ultimately heal me. If you’re interested in this book, I will gladly share the info.

Wishing you a gentle and joyous day.

You are right LAT. I used to think acceptance meant you had to like it or that everything was ok. How wrong I was. It just means that it's the way it is. I don't like living with fibro but I was causing myself such pain by constantly fighting it. I had to learn what my boundaries were. Still struggle with that but I'm getting better. Peace and prayers to all!❤️🙏

@LAT. 🤗🤗 I love how you are turning around your thinking . Accepting bad things is very hard but Thinking about it in a positive way is even harder for me . Latly I alway been saying everything happens for a reason. Rather we understand why at the time or in the future or not at all. It all comes back to how we choice to deal

I am so Proud of you and your new Journey to happiness. 💕💕💕💕 I wish I could read the pic you shared with us . 😐 my eyes are so bad

Anyways way to go 🎈🎈🎉🎉 You should be proud .

@Frustrated. Yes I am right there with you. I am also learning that we don't have to like what's going on to accept it . But once we accept it. I remind myself that it is what it is and I don't have to understand why. Honestly that does help me 🤗🤗🤗🤗

@WesternGirl The picture says "for thousands of years,people the world over have unknowingly brought strife into there lives by trying to beat a life challenge, peace, Joy, Prosperity and all the other blessings of the universe are not created by beating anything, rather they are created by embracing everything" thought I would type it up for you I didn't want you feeling left out 😂💕

Oh I'm glad you that you posted this LAT. I'm just now starting to accept that I have lupus, Sjögren's syndrome and fibromyalgia. I was diagnosed January 2016 and it has been a struggle. Now I am realizing that no I won't be able to teach again, and no I won't be able to socialize with family and friends. But now my life is a different new normal, do I like it? Of course not, but I have took the 1st step of accepting it. Still a work in progress Hugs everyone💜

I was also told to focus on the things that you can do instead of looking back and thinking about the things you can no longer do. It's quite a journey. Easier some days than others. 😉
