Accepting You're Epilepsy
It is selfish and pure laziness to pity ourselves because we have epilepsy. You must learn how to cope with your problems so you can help who suffer from the same difficulty. You are not alone, if you feel you are unable to straighten out your life the way you want it to be. To live with and accept epilepsy, you need to open your heart and listen to what it is telling you inside. Your heart will never lie to you because it only tells the truth. You must have the courage to ask your heart why you refuse to accept the fact that you are epileptic. Usually when we chose to hide things about ourselves, it is because we are embarrassed about whatever we are trying to hide. Epilepsy is not something you should be ashamed of having. People with diseases, and disorders are constantly coming out into the open. They are learning to talk about the problems in their lives and are educating society about them. This is the way they heal the scars inside them.. Society is becoming less fearful about many of the diseases and disorders that unfortunate individuals have to live with. There are more and more support groups and research studies. Nothing is going to get better for epileptics until we learn to help each other. There are self-help groups for everything because people realize that to change and strengthen themselves they must accept what they have and learn how to live with it in a productive manner. You need to look at life in a positive way. You need to say to yourself, “OK, I’m not happy with the person, I have become. I need to change and this is what I am going to do about it.” Stop being lazy. This is the first step to healing and strengthening our souls and self-esteem. Be proud in who you are. Be thankful each morning that you can wake up and feel the warmth of the sun and the beauty that surrounds us all.
