There are very few absolutes in this world. Most things come with many ways to look at them – at least two sides and multiple angles.
We tend to see sharp contrasts more easily and when it comes to dealing with chronic illness and disease our human desire and inclination to be positive creatures is challenged. If we aren’t being positive then geez – we must be being negative.
Maybe so, but if you look to find the flip side to your situation you can – laugh at yourself, scream at the insanity of the pain, walk on coals! Do what seems unnatural when it seems hopeless – the opposite of the negative, the down, the wrong. Find a way to turn it around – to find the flip side. Live positively positive. Every time you do – you win and the pain loses.
