It can be disappointing to feel as though you’ve not achieved much, not done enough, that you don’t have anything ‘to show’ for your years. It’s not true. Look a little deeper. See the beauty in the person you are. The warrior that keeps you fighting, every day. The way your illness may have made you more empathic, appreciative, considerate, thoughtful, resilient.

Your achievement as a person is priceless and immeasurable. Remind yourself that regardless of where you are, what society deems that you have or have not accomplished, that you’re a good person, and that counts for more than you realise.

  1. I hate the notion that our worth is determined by tangible, visible measurements like the job we have, salary we earn, house we own and car we drive. It’s so shallow. A friend of mine, who at the time was a senior local government officer stated his occupation as “refuse collector” on his daughter’s grammar school application form, as a protest! (She still got a place!)

    1. Yes, so very true. I love that protest, so simple yet a powerful idea (and so glad she still got a place)!
