One if the big complaints from people with chronic illnesses is that they have no support. No one understands or sympathizes with them.
Although it is nice to have support, in reality, the only person you can ever truly rely on to be there for you, to understand and agree with you, is you.
So why stress yourself? I have learned to never ever rely on anyone else for anything. Support, help – anything. That way I am never disappointed with anyone.
Learn to be happy with yourself, by yourself, and life would be so much easier. Don’t depend on anyone else to bring you happiness. It will never work.
