Dealing with diabetes: my way isn’t your way

There is no right way to adapt to diabetes.

There is no wrong way to adapt to diabetes.

My way is the only way!

As individual human beings who just so happen to have diabetes, it is imperative that we remind ourselves of this from time to time.

“Your diabetes may vary”? Taken literally = Nonsense! More like “Your diabetes will vary.”

I am my own chief executive.

I am my own legislature.

I am my own judge.

Thankfully, I have numerous well-qualified advisors helping me shoulder the burden.

Perhaps my way is conducive to me flourishing in life. Perhaps it is not. Ultimately, it does not really matter all that much.

Right focus. That is the main thing.

Adapting to diabetes in a beneficial manner is absolutely essential. To focus on how one has adapted is foolish and, potentially, futile.

Right focus. Focus on what is in your control.

How the hell am I supposed to know whether or not my way is beneficial?! Magic? Visiting an oracle? Luck?

Analogy: Life is war. What the Eastern Front was to World War 2 diabetes is to life.

More often than not, an indirect approach is superior to a direct one. In war and in life, this strategy holds good.

I can decide to try to change my habits.

Whether or not I will or even can is not completely in my control. This is irrelevant.

Options: to let my habits stay the same, or to take action and discover if they can be improved.

————

I focus on meditating frequently, self-reflection, and writing. These are what help me the most.

These form my foundation for self-discovery.

Ultimately, it is up to you to find your own.

The power is in your own hands.
