In the past year, I have learned that the RRMS diagnosis I received years ago will not define who I am as a person. It will not take away what I know I’ve become. It may have taken away friends or people I thought were my friends…but I simply will not allow it take away me.
In the past year, I’ve become more compassionate towards others. I know this because I worked at a local Salvation Army in my hometown and the impact it left on my life will last a lifetime. The phrase “do not judge a book by its cover” brought a whole new meaning to my life.
In the past year, I’ve learned just because I want something, doesn’t mean I have to have it. If I let that want go, if it comes back again, you find yourself questioning if that want was meant to be. Let it go… it will come back… I’m sure of it.
In the past year, I’ve learned life is too short to have hatred towards others. It really is. My family suffered dearly over the loss of my uncle. It is an emptiness I cannot explain. Please love each other.
