People say the stupidest things when you have cancer :: [Episode 13]
People say the stupidest things when you have cancer.
Like me, you've probably heard things like "Oh, my uncle died of that!’ or the old platitude, " Don’t worry, God won’t give you more than you can handle" or the old chestnut "God uses all things.”
It drove me bonkers.
We’re already hurting and wrestling with doubt and fear, and the last thing we need is to be nervous about what people are about to blurt out or have the hurt of their unthinking words piled on top. It hurts and it is terribly hard to just shrug the words off.
What if we could just carry on, not letting them rattle, hurt or annoy us? What if there was a way to rise above the careless comments and walk in a place of peace...where things people said didn’t impact us. Well, my friend, there is. Listen in.
