Having a chronic illness, we have to learn to move in the opposite direction. We have to start moving towards less. We have to learn to say NO, to others and to ourselves. We have to learn that we can’t do it all. It takes time, it’s no easy task and it’s something that I think even the best of us are constantly struggling with. We weren’t raised to say no to responsibility but to take it on gladly while asking for more. Slowly, we have to take the world off our shoulders lest we drop it and it crumble into a million pieces.
