Fibromyalgia: Survival of the Fittest

For as long as I can remember, we, as a society, have been taught that it is the strong that will survive and the weak shall perish. But is that true? Is it really the whole story?

Some of the smartest people have said adaptability is the key to survival in the long run. But what about right now, in your immediate future? 

Have you survived your life by hiding your head in the sand?

Or do you proudly wear your toughness as armour?

What we perceive as weakness;we hide, and what we think will protect us from further pain; we flaunt.

Are you like me, believing isolation is the best defence? 

Or do you think by surrounding yourself with people you trust, you are safe?

I think these polar opposite beliefs are both ineffective.

How to find that middle ground? That is the million dollar question, isn’t it?
