Someone told me recently that being afraid of the consequences is what motivates us to take care of what we have and YES we need fear to recognize threats but yet I need to point out that living with fear isn’t living.
Being afraid of diabetes is pointless unless you can do something about it, isn’t it? Diabetes is a different way to live, in the way that people with it can enjoy a more healthy life when we talk about having a balanced diet, making exercise a habit and having the responsibility of our daily care.
Still, we can’t never forget that Diabetes IS a disease, one that can shorten and worsen our life IF WE DON’T TAKE CARE and we can’t change that, what we can change is the perception we have of it but at the end is up to one of us how to think of it, for me the difference is thinking in a different and positive way.
Today I accept those things I can’t change; to change the things I can, to learn how to recognize the difference.
