Health and career

Hi Brooke,

I am trying to accept my chronic health condition. Your advice has been brilliant for me so far and I am practising what you have suggested. I am definitely making small shifts. Thank you for all your wonderful work in the world.

One thing that is coming up for me time and time again is that due to my ill health I am unable to work full time (which is a fact, right?). This affects my ability to earn a high wage, which in turn affects my ‘quality of life’. This doesn’t make me feel good about myself. I constantly feel not good enough and it really upsets me that I have to be supported financially. I always wanted to earn my own way and not be dependant on people. I know these are thoughts making me feel this way. However there is strong evidence that i cannot ignore/change? I also had a dream of one day changing my carer. However I know that I would not be able to withstand the training due to me being ill. I have tried to talk myself round. That it is okay etc. And focus on all the good in my life. However, when I see family members who are working at the career I would have chosen it brings up my old negative thoughts. I don’t want to feel like this anymore. I feel like i can no longer dream of doing anything I put my mind to. Any help and advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you xx
