Fibromyalgia women - Do you know how wonderful you are?

Someone said to me last week, "Do you know how wonderful you are?" and my instant reply was yes I do. 

This may sound like a very conceited reply but it really wasn't, I was simply answering honestly. 

To be a woman with Fibromyalgia and to know your worth is not conceited it is a gift. It took me a long time to fall back in love with myself. I often look back at photos and remember how I felt as a woman when that image was taken. We are so hard on ourselves. 

Education teaches us many things yet in the seventies and eighties it never bothered to teach you self-worth and why it is so important.

As women, especially now with such a debilitating illness, we all need to fall back in love with ourselves and appreciate how wonderful we are in order to grow. 

If we imagine our growth as a person as building blocks in a tall tower, each block a unit of time as we grow. Any sadness, pain (emotional and physical) trauma causes an imperfection in the block anything from a chunk missing to a chip, regardless of this, we continue to grow on top. The imperfections cause an instability within the internal structure and at an unknown time, the blocks will fall.

I always believe this is what happened to me, I ignored the emotional issues, trauma, heartache within my life and believed I was strong enough. By putting a lid on an emotion and storing it away in your mind does not mean you have dealt effectively with that emotion. 

We all have internal wounds that are holding us back from true growth. 

Until you heal the wounds internally you are going to bleed. You can bandage the bleed with external factors such as food, alcohol, drugs, work, the gym, smoking and sex but eventually, it will ooze out and stain everything in your life. You must find the strength to open up the wounds, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in the past, make peace with them and allow yourself space, rest and time to heal. 

Then you will become your true wonderful potential as a woman. 

 Love and gentle hugs to you all
