Living with chronic illness or chronic pain is exhausting. The days when it’s exacerbated can feel overwhelming and never-ending. Here’s a tip: instead of fighting, accept and surrender.
When we think of illness, we almost always use the word “fight” because that’s what it feels like – a battle. It can be a battle just to get out of bed, to go to the store, to do the normal everyday things in life. But what happens when we stop fighting? Sometimes, when we surrender, our body gets what it needs to move forward.
