⛔ Diabetes can’t make you mad
⛔ Diabetes can’t make you overwhelmed
⛔ Diabetes can’t make you frustrated
🙌 It’s your thoughts ABOUT Diabetes that makes you mad, overwhelmed, and frustrated
Growing up, I used to get so mad at Diabetes for all the things I wasn’t “allowed” to eat.
Leave me on a deserted island with Oreos and Golden Grahams and I’d be the happiest person alive.
So when my parents told me what I could and could not eat, they would make me so mad! When my dad took the bowl of chips right out from under me, he would make me so furious! When my mom gave me shots on a regular basis, she would make me so upset.
⛔ My parents couldn’t make me mad
⛔ My dad couldn’t make me furious
⛔ My mom couldn’t make me upset
🙌 It was my thoughts ABOUT my parents that made me mad, furious, and upset
I felt SO helpless, powerless, and out of control growing up with diabetes. I gave ALL of my power to the disease, to my parents, and to the food I could not eat.
I so wish they taught this concept in school!
NO ONE can make you feel ANYTHING. Even love. It all comes from your thoughts about the person or the thing. The first step is awareness.
YOU have ALL the power to feel ANY way you want to feel. And no one can take that away from you.
