Living with chronic illness can feel like a never-ending battle.
You may have to fight to get the right diagnosis and treatment, fight for your changing relationships, fight to reach your dreams, or to simply make it through the day when you feel terribly sick. It’s no wonder so many of us feel attracted to the ‘spoonie warrior’ analogy.
Of course, you shouldn’t think of life as a constant battlefield. Keeping your body and mind on high alert all the time will only stress out your nervous system, leaving you even more exhausted and depleted. Approaching your chronic illness with acceptance and compassion is much more sustainable in the long run.
But in my life, there have been crucial times when having that fighting spirit made all the difference. Without determination and perseverance, it’s hard to push through the pain to study while being housebound, to work on recovery and get well enough to start a family and build a career.
Hopefully these 14 warrior quotes will help you to keep fighting for the life you dream of too.
Which warrior quotes inspire you to keep fighting for your health, goals and dreams?
