Having a chronic illness can really make your self esteem take a nosedive. We need to remember on a daily basis that all that matters is what God says about us. There are so many things that he cherishes about us. Please remember that you are enough even with a chronic illness! Don’t ever forget that.
4. Learn to be compassionate and considerate with yourself just as you would with a friend. So many times we are more compassionate to a friend than we are with ourselves. Don’t be so hard on yourself.
5. Learn to forgive yourself and others. So many people can disappoint us in this life including ourselves. Harboring grudges and bitterness does not do our health any good. Learn to let go and let God fill you up.
6. God still has a purpose for your life even though you can’t do all the things you use to do. There are so many stories of how God has used unlikely people. (2 Corinthians 12:9)
