Surviving Chronic Illness Through Commitment
In my latest post, I shared the importance of having hope when surviving chronic illness. You can read about that here. The seventh quality that is crucial when surviving chronic illness is commitment. Staying committed to your loved ones is a critical component when dealing and healing through chronic illnesses. You need to be committed to stick out the fight for recovery with your loved ones. Commitment helps families get through the toughest of times.I have learned through my parents’ example what commitment is. Through my battle, they never left me. My parents’ commitment to me literally saved my life during my struggle with Kleine-Levin Syndrome (KLS). They never walked out or gave up on me when I was going through KLS episodes. They stay committed to me and help me back to my feet after each episode. Having my parents’ commitment is making all the difference on my road to recovery!
I want to share with you my definition of what commitment is. Commitment is a promise kept. It is a pledge taken. It is your word. Commitment is making things work even when it’s hard. It is being loyal and trustworthy. Commitment is dedication. Commitment is love.
