When to fight when to let go

One of the hardest issues for anyone dealing with a serious disease is to decide when it makes sense to continue fighting and when it is time to let go.   There is a fine line between letting go and giving up, and there is also a fine line between fighting your disease and having a stubborn resistance to reality. Emotions run high, and the cycle of hope and fear spins around and around. Faced with this challenge, in order to make wise decisions, self-reflection is essential. If you explore gently and with kindness, you can contact an intimate and profound inner knowing, something that is genuine and true. You can ride this razor’s edge with clarity and courage. — Judy Lief
