4 thoughts on “A Hippocrates quote

  1. This is exactly what I have had to work on, letting go of the things that were making me sick, like many bad habits and toxic relationships.

    It only took me until I was 50 years old, but I guess it’s better late than never. There were so many issues that I just didn’t want to look at, because part of me felt like I deserved to be punished for the bad things that I’ve done.

    For whatever reason, I was given a chance to live a better life, it took me a long time to feel like I was worthy of it. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do with my life, but I would like to leave the world a better place for future generations.

    1. Thanks Randy. Yes, it’s important to give up on the things that made you sick, like bad habits and toxic relationships. Although it’s not always easy and it can take time to work through, it has to be done.

      I believe you’re in a much better place now. The idea is that you continue to work on yourself so that you can work out what you would like to do with your life. As you say, better late than never… it’s good, better than not at all.

  2. It seems sensible to me that we have to give up on what is making us poorly, emotionally or physically before we can start to heal.

    Leaving those things behind is the first step in healing.

    1. Yes, it seems sensible to me too. Not easily achievable for some, particularly when it comes to food and relationships.

      A human failing I feel. Hard to let go of the things we know we need to let go of. We’d rather hold on and stay sick than let go and live without.

      When it comes to relationships, we worry how we’ll cope the other end. The irony is we do, but it doesn’t stop us thinking we won’t.
