Being able to walk pain-free is a blessing;
Being able to walk without showing the pain is a skill.
A few years back, I was a completely different being than I am today.
Those who know me, will tell you about the wound, scar and sufferings life had put on me all of a sudden.
Why me ?
What have I done to deserve this?
Why doesn’t it get better ?
Should I kill myself ?
Or should I wait for the storm to pass ?
Little did I know, that the storm was never going to pass, it was going to stay there with me for all the years ahead like a loyal partner !
You must be wondering what would have happened;
Let me tell you before you assume something else, I know you think it’s a heartbreak, but it’s not, silly !
It’s a monster that lives inside you 24*7, causes pain in 10,000 parts of your body all at once and all of the order even more than that in cancer.
Yes, something like that does exist and has sworn to be my life partner forever, it’s called Fibromyalgia ! (Sure, go Google it )
Pain and those infinite other symptoms including migraine, twitching, insomnia, depression, restless leg, tinnitus, nausea and what not !
Crazy, you may call it, but that’s how it is, very rare, invisible and incurable auto-immune disease.
Today, smiling back at days when I used to interrogate myself with those questions, I pat on my back and remind that surely I have come a long way.
I suffered, cried in pain day in and out, but then I got up !
I started fighting back with an intention of never letting this monster defeat me.
Was I successful?
Maybe I should leave that on you !
The monster never left me, but I am really grateful to it for having chosen me out of millions of other people !
Calm Insights, the motivational blog which is already getting so much of love and appreciation, was born only and only because I suffered to the core and I still do.
Those nice pretty motivational quotes and blogs and words of wisdom that you read and feel uplifted from, how else do you think I learn them and write for all of you?
Yes, I did convert my wounds into my strength.
Life is really really beautiful as I always keep saying, and mind you, it’s coming from a person who is in debilitating pain all the time.
So yes, do not ever underestimate Life.
I know you want to know, what keeps me going.
Just one little thing, that will answer that question as well as be a perfect end to this blog!
And here it is my beautiful people;
It all depends on how bad you want it to happen.
