“I feel as if I were a piece in a game of chess, when my opponent says of it: That piece cannot be moved.” Soren Kierkegaard #FollowGreatFootsteps
WHY I’V CHOSEN THIS QUOTE
Not an especially inspiring quote but it does reflect my mood and the frustration I am feeling at the moment.
There are plenty of us living with all sort of illnesses and I just like many of you , try to cope with living with them in the best way I can. These days I have good coping strategies but they don’t seem to be working.
I’m using my new skills and upping my game harder than ever and still I suffer.
Well, there is an element of being lost and not knowing in what direction I am going in.
My opponent not only mastered this game of chess ,he carved the very pieces of each piece, made the board and wrote the the rules. To say I’m frustrated and stuck is an understatement.
I’m struggling . That is the truth.
I need to start to think differently. I don’t know where the rule book is. I know all the cheat ways to get to my goal but I want to do it in a courageous and new way.
Our fight is frustrating. We feel at the mercy of our illness but we can stick together and support one another. Just by expressing ourselves in our blogging we are reaching out for support.
I need another way. I’m reaching out today becasue I don’t know who else to turn too
