... and you will start to move on.
Can you ever truly move on after cancer?
Do you want the good news or the bad news first?
Let’s get the bad news out of the way.
The bad news is the only reason you cannot move on after surviving cancer is because of the way you’re thinking and feeling.
The good news is you can change your way of thinking and feeling and truly move on from cancer once and for all.
Many of us struggle to truly let go of our cancer experience because for so long it defined who we were.
Our whole lives revolved around it.
Nothing else existed except the fact that we had cancer and we didn’t want to die.
And then we become the lucky ones, somehow we survive and get to the other side of cancer treatment.
The doctor tells us it’s time to go BACK to our lives and off we go.
I wish the doctors wouldn’t tell us that.
To go back to normal.
Because that’s the problem.
That’s the mistake we make.
That’s the mistake I made.
After my treatment was done the doctor told me it was time to go BACK to normal.
I spent over two years desperately trying to go back and failing dismally.
There is no BACK to go back to.
But as long as we keep trying to get back to our lives before cancer, then we will continue to carry our cancer experience with us wherever we go.
If we’re focused on the past then how can we possibly move on and put cancer behind us?
I kept believing I could get back to that sexy blonde bombshell with the great cleavage and rock ’n’ roll lifestyle.
But that wasn’t me anymore.
And as long as I kept trying to get BACK there I would keep failing and keep blaming cancer for not being able to go BACK to who I used to be.
STOP TRYING TO GO BACK!
Stop trying to go back and you will start moving on.
Forget the old you.
You went through cancer.
You’ll never be the old you again.
You are a new improved version of the old you.
Your stronger, more courageous, deeper.
You know what it means to go through hell and survive.
Of course you’ll never be the same again.
So instead of trying to go back.
Get to know yourself now.
Get to know yourself all over again as the person you are today.
The person that transformed.
The person that survived cancer.
That’s how you truly move on and leave the cancer behind you.
