When I was first diagnosed 8 years ago, I was ultra sensitive to people's comments. Over time, I have learned to let it go. Most people mean is human nature to always find the good in anything bad that happens in life. It does not make me a healthy survivor to continue to dwell on what others say. I do think that because of my own experience, that I am better at filtering what comes out of my own mouth though in these type of situations. I think every survivor could probably write a book on the stupid, insensitive comments directed our way since our diagnosis.

Dear Deb,
Thanks for sharing and for emphasizing that Healthy Survivors both recognize that people mean well and learn to let it go.
With hope, Wendy
