If there’s one lesson that having multiple chronic illnesses has taught me, it’s to never give up. Never give up believing that there’s a way to reach your goals, even if that way deviates considerably from what you originally intended to pursue.
Never give up believing that you are strong enough to face whatever comes your way, even when you feel way too exhausted to believe that this is still true. Never give up knowing that someone is looking to you as a role model, given that you’ve been on the same challenging journey longer than they have.
Never give up the belief that one day, it will all make sense. You’ll finally know the reason why you were chosen to confront long-term challenges.
