“Just to let my friends and family know, I am going to post as many positive images that I want every day. Why? Let me explain things to you.
I have one family member who is battling cancer, has been for awhile, and she’s still very ill. Another family member has battled cancer twice, but still isn’t completely well. Another family member is diabetic and showing early signs of Alzheimer’s. I’ve lost nearly all of my close family members in the last four years. I lost my baby sister to cancer. I lost my husband to cancer.
Posting positive images and memes is a way to send encouragement to those who are still fighting, including friends who are still battling cancer or other diseases. It’s also a way for me to feel better. After my husband died, I was angry and felt lost, like I didn’t belong anywhere. Reading these positive images is helping me with my journey to rediscover myself, and it has helped. I’m not the same person I was three years ago. I’m better, and more positive, than I used to be, because of my daily reading of positive images. I choose to share only the ones that I feel could make a difference in someone else’s life.
If you do not like them, feel free to move me to your restricted list, or unfriend me. At this point, I don’t need or want negative people in my life. My life journey is not like yours. Please don’t think that your friendship or family connection means nothing to me, it’s just different from yours, and I don’t expect you to understand it. I do, however, expect you to accept it, like I accept yours. If you can’t do this for me, then leave. I’ve accepted the differences in others all my life, without many people accepting mine. Those people who can’t or wont accept my differences are no longer in my life, and I’m better and stronger for it. So why not just accept that I post those positive images? If you dont like them, the problem is yours, not mine. And I refuse to let your problem with something that is helping me, get in the way of my life.” -Anonymous
