". . .and the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles, no matter how long, but only by a spiritual journey, a journey of one inch, very arduous and humbling and JOYFUL, by which we arrive at the ground at our own feet, and learn to be at home."
What an excellent blog post. Most people don’t appreciate–or deny–that depression easily can take over after cancer treatment is finished. Thanks for reblogging this important message. xox
It is such an important topic that should be discussed more openly Jan. Thanks for your comment.
That’s a great article and the author is right, we need to break down these hushed-up taboos – blogging and writing are such powerful tools for bringing depression to light. ~Catherine
I was very amazed to discovered the emotional component to developing breast cancer. It has to do with women who do everything for others and not enough for themselves and while this is an attitude that comes from a heart-felt place, many women just do too much! I have learned to take more time for myself, learned to take small breaks during the day rather than do one thing after another to get stuff done and THEN maybe, if there is any time–I will sit down. Well, there is always something that needs doing and that 30 minutes break with nothing to do never comes–you have to just take that break anyway ladies!! YOU ARE WORTH IT! Your presence in whatever your role is in the world is PRECIOUS. You are more precious than you know! You are valuable–no matter what your mind says or society says–YOU matter! So please ladies, TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES! GOD Bless you.
