How can I even ask that question, right?
How badly do I really want to be well? From all these life-crushing symptoms? Are you kidding?
No, I’m not kidding!
I’ve spent plenty of time with people in my Get Your Life Back! Thyroid Health workshops, in coaching sessions and people I’ve met on the street and in grocery lines, who all share their list of awful, nasty, devastating thyroid symptoms. Yet, when I share with them what they must do to rid themselves of most all the symptoms in just weeks and then months, they glaze over.
Some don’t just glaze over, they become adamant about NOT doing a thing I’ve shared with them.
These are just a few of the resistant responses I get:
“I can’t give up sugar and sweets!”
“I’m a chocoholic! No way!”
“I know I can’t follow that strict at diet!”
“There’s no way I’m doing all that. You just don’t understand my schedule!”
“I love my bread! I’ll just cut back a little.”
“I’ll die with out my soda’s every day!”
“I’ve just never been able to stick to a healthy diet.”
“I eat healthy. That can’t be the reason!”
“I just don’t have time to do all these things.”
“My family will not eat this way too, so I just can’t do it.”
“It’s the holidays, I’ll do it later.”
Any of these sound familiar?
The one I love the most, that shocks me every time is:
“I don’t believe that nutrition has anything to do with my symptoms.”
I’m shocked right now just typing out that sentence!
See, here’s the thing, personally, I can’t change anyone but myself. My job is to help myself be the healthiest and best person I can be in my lifetime. Your job is the same for your life.
And so, I can share and teach and shout healthy tips and rules for the mountain tops, but like pearls to swine (that’s somewhere in the Bible!), only a few will take proven advice and follow it to help themselves.
We can get very stuck in old mental drama patterns, family victim (“This is just how our family is, w’ere sick people”) or super-hero/rescuer patterns, and others that will support us to stay in our symptoms because we don’t know how to be happy, well and robust anymore. Maybe we never were.
It’s a HUGE leap for some to get out of the old patterns and stories and to be new again.
YOUR DESERVE COMPLETE HEALTH AND HAPPINESS
You do deserve it all… as long as you are willing to pay the cost. The price is you doing the work for yourself.
It’s not necessarily easy or fun or lots of things we’d like it to be. Oh, well!
DO IT ANYWAY.
If you’ve read this far, you’re one of the few people who’ve picked up lots of pearls in your life and use them as the gems they are. You are helping yourself. You are doing the doing and getting well-er every day.
YEA FOR YOU! 🙂 Let me know how you’re doing! 🙂
