One More Day
August 9, 2011

Usually when people are sad, they don’t do anything.  They just cry over their condition.  But when they get angry, they bring about a change.
—  Malcolm X

Those of us who have a chronic illness often feel a lot of anger, but we can choose how to deal with the anger.  If we insist on denying it, we may isolate ourselves and be numbed by an unbearable sadness.  Or we might lash out at the people we love.

A sounder choice for us is to acknowledge our anger — and our right to be angry.  We don’t deserve illness.  Or pain.  When we allow ourselves these honest reactions, we are freer to move toward acceptance — and action.  When we accept our limitations — no matter how unfair they are — we then can decide where and how and when we will make needed changes in our lives.

My anger can lead me toward growth if I use it in the right ways.
