When you think of how you’re living with chronic illness, are you allowing the Spirit in you to be in control, or have your negative coping strategies conditioned you to a place of the underdog?
In other words, are your survival skills running the show?
If so, that’s completely ok and you are not alone. You have amazing protective parts which are helping you survive.
My survival strategies involved depending on other people to do things for me like the housework or the supermarket shopping and I would often lash out at my poor old mum.
I always felt better afterwards as I’d released a whole load of anger.
I wanted to talk about my situation all the time; the comfort from others helped me survive. I thought about suicide constantly, this caused me to feel calmer as it was my way out of the hell I was in.
