Give Up

“Just give up!” Many of us, chronic condition or not, have had this thought. With chronic conditions the idea of giving up on the things we like or need to do can cross our minds on a regular basis. Even the most positive people can be pushed towards feelings of defeat when pain and fatigue take over your body. I’m right there with you and this post is for me as much as it is for you. Yes, there will be days, weeks, maybe months, where we will need to set projects to the side or find alternative ways to get things done. With that said, we must only give up on giving up. If we give up we won’t be happier or satisfied, we will feel dejected and the chronic condition will still be there. Give up on giving up and keep going. “Obstacles don’t block the path, they are the path.” ~proverb
