Complaining Will Make Your Recovery Harder

By Nacole Ali for Pink Notes

It is hard to hear when you or someone close to has been diagnosed. All sorts of things go through your head. Your life has been disrupted, and you have so many questions. I get it. But here's the thing, mindset is everything when dealing with a critical illness, and the people around you. I am sure you have heard by now to stay positive. And it's true, staying positive will get you through certain situations, and help you to recover faster. One thing I urge you not to do, is to complain about it. Research has shown the complaining can lead to negative thoughts. The last thing you need when dealing with a critical illness is negative thoughts, it is a waste of energy. If you are in a funky mood, you are entitled, but don't stay there for to long. Try your best to snap out of it, do do something you like. Tell your friends to stop talking about the illness, and change to subject to something entertaining or fun. Keep positive people in your life and feed off of their good energy. Think about what makes you smile, go for a walk and listen to your favorite music. Take up a hobby, watch a funny movie,
