7 inspiring quotes about accepting chronic illness

quotes about accepting chronic illness

Over the years I have been collecting quotes that inspire me on this chronic illness journey and I hope you may find them helpful to you too.  I especially like the first quote because it is so simple and to the point.

Please feel free to use or share these images however you wish. Today I am sharing the quotes on acceptance.

Acceptance is often confused with the notion of being OKAY with what has happened. This is not the reality. Most people don’t ever feel okay about having a chronic illness, like fibromyalgia. But we come to a place where we can accept our new reality. We learn to live with our new normal.  

I resisted this new norm for years, and tried to maintain my life as it was before I became ill. This made life very difficult, frustrating and exhausting. 

Then I came to the realization that I had to readjust. I asked for help and reorganized my daily life to be more in tune with how I could now live. I listened to my needs and the needs of those with whom I lived. I reached out and made new friends. I started to reach out to others and became involved in their lives. I changed, grew and evolved all because of the process of acceptance. 

I can never give up hope of a cure, but I could not begin to live again until I accepted my condition.
