Forever In Debt To Your Priceless Advice

You've just got to stay positive!

You beat cancer, so you can do anything!

Energy follows thought.

Stop talking/thinking/worrying about it so much. It's over with now.

Should you be drinking that cocktail?

After what you've faced, you shouldn't have any fears left!

Only eat organic.

Only eat alkaline.

You are never given more than you can handle.

Time to get back to normal.

Avoid stress.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

Get started on your bucket list.

You should keep your hair short like that. You have the face for it.

Just be happy you beat it.

Everything happens for a reason.

Don't worry. It's gonna be ok.

Sometimes we just don't know what to say. And I'm guilty as fuck of saying a few of these myself.

Maybe you've seen these cards making the rounds on the interwebs. I so would have loved to receive one of these. And wish I had known about them so I could give them to others, to whom I've said the totally wrong thing. Even now, I'm pretty sure I'm saying some totally wrong things, even though I should absolutely know better at this point.

I have heard some of these comments and some bother me more than others. I ignore most of them now because we live in a society where people feel the need to always say something, even if what they are saying makes no sense. I am sure I have said some inappropriate things in the past but coming from a family of cancers has taught me how to approach a cancer patient, and now being a patient myself, I know what not to say...or at least have an idea. Because I now get it. Some people really don't know what to say.

I love those cards and I think that was an excellent idea to educate people a little bit. I would have loved to receive one as well.

I hope your transition is going smoothly. xoxo

Hi Rebecca & thanks so much for reading & commenting. Yeah, sometimes it's just so hard to know what to say. And not just in regards to cancer. I frequently feel at a loss for words...lingering effects of chemo brain. xx

Oh man, this post says it all. I've heard many of these myself, and they angered me. The "Everything happens for a reason" is probably one of the trite expressions I hate the most. Thank you for this post.
