STAY STRONG October 02, 2017 00:00
When you come face-to-face with a condition such as breast cancer, it is never easy. Here, you have only two choices – you either give up, or you roll up your sleeves and fight like hell.
Your mindset is powerful. If you continue to think you can beat this, then you will. It starts with the way you see it. It is not the end of the road if you refuse to accept it as the end of the road.
There are days you will feel like you are at the end of the rope and there is no more room. As Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Go ahead, tie a knot and hang on.” Make it clear to yourself and everyone around you that you are not giving up no matter what. This is not about how you feel or the pain – it is about defining your reality with strength from within.
Take the battle to a whole new level with a mindset that is stronger than the medical condition. Though cancer may have part of your body, as long as it does not have your mind, you are winning the war.
Do Not Give Up
Most of us will never know how strong we are until we have no other choice than to be strong. You do not know how far you can go until you have made up your mind to go all the way. As long as you keep your mind strong, you are not going down – you will remain a survivor.
You may wonder, “How long is this going to last?” or “How long am I going to be expected to hang on?” See, your wait is not forever. Your battle is not going to rage eternally, keep the faith and you will see your recovery in no time. Your concern should always be how to stay positive and how to keep your mind empowered. If you can do this, your part is done. Just sit back and watch your strength return and health restore.
As a form of precaution, make sure that the people around you do not give up either. They also need to see that you are not giving up – and brace themselves to fight this with you. We know you are a survivor, we know you are winning.
No matter how tough it gets, stay strong – you are beating it.
Be Dissident, be YOU!
