The words you say carry more weight than you know, and to some, they may weigh more than they can handle. Be kind, speak with purpose and clarity, always with the intent to help those around you grow. If you do say words that are hurtful, be quick to use words that heal, and in doing this you will find that you are being more and more like Christ; speaking truth in love.

I was thinking earlier, I’m not sure chronic illness is isolating in and of itself, I think it’s often people’s lack of understanding surrounding illness that makes you feel so freaking alone. Sometimes the lack of empathy is more unbearable than the symptoms themselves, like you’re living in a state that is so entirely foreign and inconceivable to most people and it’s just utterly alienating.
