I know my blog is supposed to be a humorous take on dealing with infertility. But I have to admit sometimes it’s hard to find room for laughs when the pain is insurmountable. So warning … not sure this post will make anyone laugh.
Recently, too many friends of mine have been going through some awfully terrible things in their lives that in my opinion are far worse than infertility. I am asking myself over and over again why bad things happen to good people. In the midst of all of this deep sorrow, the only piece of advice that I can give someone who is battling with infertility and who believes that her experience is on such a tragic level is to remember that there is good in your life. Yes, you’re not getting everything that you dream about and that sucks. But, it is important to note that you still have your friends and family – the relationships that make life worth living. You also may have a career that you are passionate about, or some other interests that bring you joy or meaning.
From a philosophical standpoint, no matter what you’re going through in your life, no matter what adversity comes your way, remember that you are stronger than you think. You can reach down into your soul and find a way back to life. You can overcome the challenges and prosper. You can try and achieve your dreams.
So to all that are suffering now … no matter what is causing the suffering … I wish you courage and strength to get through this difficult time. The cliché is right – Time really does heal all wounds. My wish to you is that the time will go by fast rather than slow.
