The only way to succeed with breast cancer or in life is to be honest with yourself. Have you been trying to hide the fact that you have breast cancer? Are you in denial? If so, it is time to let go of your fears, your shame and accept who you are. If you have been carrying many angry feelings inside yourself because you are angry about having breast cancer, then you must rid yourself of those angry feelings.
Often when we carry angry feelings inside ourselves, we take them out on those around us. We also hide our weaknesses and the things we do not like about ourselves from others, hide them and from ourselves. As a result, all the negative characteristics and emotions that we do not fix now will eat away at us little by little, and the person who suffers the most is you. Be honest with yourself so you can heal your old wounds and begin a new way of life with a clean slate.
Lying to yourself and to the people around you will get you nowhere in this life. You will get farther in life by being honest with yourself and others. There is no such thing as telling little white lies. One lie leads to another lie, and the lie grows bigger. Being honest with yourself is not something you do just in this program; you must be honest throughout your life.
You have to be proud of yourself. If there is something about yourself you are not happy with, then you need to change it. To do this, you must be honest with yourself.
Breast cancer is a part of your life. It will not disappear, so you need to learn how to live a fulfilling life. Understand that you are not alone and that there are many individuals with the same condition. These individuals are eagerly looking for support. Breast Cancer should not stop you from accomplishing what you want in life, unless you let it.
Our main goal is to repair all the emotional and psychological damage that we have inflicted upon ourselves over the years that have been harmful to our mind, body and soul. Say that, “I am not going to hurt myself like this anymore. I am too good a person for this.” You are who you make yourself to be. To feel better you must free yourself from the entire negative ness that you stored inside yourself and fill your soul with peace and serenity.
You cannot and should not blame anyone for your breast cancer. Rid yourself of any resentment you maybe carrying toward yourself. Make your condition a part of yourself. For many years, I have kept this saying in my mind. Maybe it will help you:
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
The courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference
