Some People can be Kind of Scary
Monday, April 09, 2018
I recently came across a discussion thread, where the person was asking what kind of meds people were taking... not mentioning names, or where... but the person stated succinctly that they had a medical condition that needed treatment, and they weren't interested in changing anything about their exercise, nutrition, or lifestyle, no matter what.
I was appalled!... I have never before come across someone who wasn't interested in a better, healthier, longer life, ESPECIALLY on SparkPeople. That's why most of us are here in the first place, right?
I know from personal experience that how one person reacts to a medication or a diet or exercise plan or anything else, can be totally different from my own reactions. I have ER visits on record that prove it! LOL Just like success in other fields, it takes work... seems like this person wants us to do his homework for him. or her. When I get new information, I look and ask questions, and try little experiments to see what may happen. I try to be open to new ideas... I wonder how they will learn anything if they won't even consider the things that have been proven to help... it makes me sad and angry at the same time. And still, I kind of want to laugh.
I know how hard change is for any of us. I do KNOW! LOL
That doesn't mean we can avoid it, because if WE don't change, our CONSEQUENCES WILL change us... It's such a pity that this person thinks a pill or something else is going to take care of it all, with no effort on their part...
Personally, I want to be in charge of the changes as much as I am capable of... some things will be what they will be, but there is a LOT I can do without a "Magic Bullet" to cure everything.
Because, as you know, I.M.Magic. (insert Maniacal laughter)
I don't really know how to deal with this person's attitude, but I do want to hope for all of us that we won't let this kind of blindness hamper our own progress toward self worth and good healthy lifestyles.
I'd like to wish all, instead, all the energy and encouragement to continue finding
our way toward a better life!
