The other day I reblogged a post entitled “Are you mentally strong?“. This post had a list from Forbes that outlined 18 things mentally strong people do. The list focuses on mental strength for professional people.
At the suggestion of Susan from Owls and Orchids, I’m writing this post to ask for your input in creating a list specifically for those suffering from chronic illnesses.
So, I’ll get us started but I’d love your input. This way we can share this through the Foggy Frog campaign as well.
Mentally Strong people with a chronic illness:
1. Focus on the positives in any situation. They focus on the little things that are going right rather than the constant pain or other symptoms.
2. Listen to their body. They don’t push their limits too hard.
What other points would you add?
What do the mentally strong people you know do?
