Word Warrior Wednesday: “You fight and you survive”

Today’s Word Warrior Wednesday is a quote from Jamie Weisman, whose book “As I live and Breathe” I’ll review pretty soon. It’s pretty powerful, and so I’ll leave it un-commented.

“Most people live in fear of some terrible event changing their lives. For the chronically ill, this terrible event has already happened, and we have been let in on an amazing secret. You fight and you survive. There is no other way. You adapt, and your life changes, but in the end, you go on with whatever compromises you have been forced to make, whatever losses you have been forced to endure. You learn to balance your fears with the simple truth that you must go on living.”
