Pick up my sword and fights again….. #HAWMC day 2

“A strong person is not the one who doesn’t cry. A strong person is one who is quiet and sheds tears for a moment, and then picks up her sword and fights again..” Sweet Misery 

Wow! This quote fits my life well. Not only in my fight against lupus, but in my fight to move ahead in all I do. 

My life has always been a fight. Whether it was a fight to have freedom from my mom or a fight against bullies in school or a fight to have a better life for my children, I’ve always just fought on.

Like I said, it’s always been this way. Bad things happen – a break-up with a boyfriend, a layoff from a job, or a fight with a family member. You can’t dwell on it. You may cry a little or a lot, but you need to pick yourself up and fight on.

I’m a worrier, so moving on from something that may be a problem is hard for me. I really can worry about nothing and this nothing can keep me up late at night and make my depression and fibromyalgia worse. I’ve had to learn to worry a little bit and then find a way to be proactive toward this worry and fight on. It’s hard; I’m not going to lie, but covering my head with blankets and crying in bed all day is not an option.

Yes, I have my bad days and have even spent a few days where most of the day is a big cry fest, then I think of this quote and I move on, fighting stronger than ever.
