Find Your Comfort 

Always remember that Jesus himself went through pain. He had been where you are and been through more pain than you could endure, ten times over. You Your never alone in this journey. I know it’s not easy and you want to give up but you must keep going. As long as you are waken up or maybe you never went to sleep, as long as you still have breath inside you; you must keep going. Your pain is not the end, your pain is an eye opener. 


Like Paul some of us are reminded every day that we are in constant pain and some of us can find the positive outlook on it, while others see it has a curse/touture. 


Mentally you must be strong, even when your body is weak, fore when the body is weak so can it trigger negative thoughts that cause you to fall right into all the discomforts in life. 

You must Find Your Comfort in the pain. Don’t just live with it and accept it, you must continue to find the root of it all. Is your pain as is the thorn in Paul? Are you accepting it to better yourself? Or have you accepted that your life was meant to be full of pain? 

Better yourself, your life, the smallest to the largest of things that need working on. This is the time to face truths that you’ve been lying to yourself about for years. What is God trying to change about you? Or in you/your life? 

Find Your Comfort… if it’s in your pajamas, then you proudly wear them and don’t feel guilty or worry about what others think. You have to think of yourself now. You are the one enduring the pain, not them. True friends and family that truly love you, will be right by your side and won’t judge you. Anyone who looks down on you, is not for you. Keep people around that allow you to feel peace, happiness and tranquility. 

Most importantly have people around you that motivate you to be a better you. Remember that you won’t see a difference unless you try. The pain may be there always, so if you’re going to hurt anyways, you might as well do what you enjoy. At least then you have a reason to why you’re in pain. Find Your Comfort. 




Judgemental

Woke up early this morning with some concerns on my mind.

Do you feel as if we judge one another by the levels of our pain, when it comes to fibromyalgia?

Yes, we are all in pain. Yet all of our pain is different and some may be the same, it’s still pain. Some people with chronic pain move more than others. Some may have more good days than others. Still, they know the pain.
There are people who work through the pain better than others. Some that feel, Well if I’m going to hurt I might as well push myself.

Don’t dislike or always hate someone because of there happiness, or goals they are achieving despite their chronic pain. And yes I agree that I’ve had my moments where I truly believe some people clearly don’t know the pain we feel and they are writing books and saying that if can be “fixed.” And do I dare say “cured” even. Yes I have seen these words from people. That’s when you know they have no idea the pain we feel and deal with every second of our life. But I respect the people who are pushing trying to fight fibromyalgia and fight to enjoy their lives.

What is true to one, may not be true to you but it’s still a truth to someone.

Even our own family and friends compare their pain to ours. Or they want to go back and forth with you on how they feel just as bad as you or they know the pain. They have no clue…

The pain I feel, if they felt it; I’m sure they’d die. Especially the head pain alone would take them out. At times I feel weak but when I see how others react to minor things like a “cold” that reminds me just how strong I really am.

Ok I must confess, when the people I love come to me telling me about this and that hurts. I want to say things like, “why should I care about your pain, if you don’t care about mine?” But I can’t be like that even though at times I’m so frustrated that I do say, “that’s how I be feeling. That’s exactly what I try to explain to you what’s going on with my body.”

I guess it’s difficult for others to notice because I carry this pain so well, I’m used to hiding it and I stand strong. Only one or two people see me at my weakest.

Let’s not hate on each other because our views are different. Let’s empower one another to encourage the hope to keep going and to never give up.
