I will not be sad about that which I do not have. I will not feel sorry for myself because I have to deal with the frustrations of a broken body. I will not feel guilty for taking the help that others so graciously offer and I will not push myself beyond what I am physically or mentally capable of just to prove something.
I will be a stronger man for the well-being of my family. I will give back all the love and support and sacrifice that others have bestowed on me. I will fight mental and physical anguish with exercise and stimulation and I will become a better man, the one I’ve always wanted to be and have been before. I will finish what I start.
I will not relent in the pursuit of my dream of having a nice home full of love and free of constant worry. I will not be stubborn and I will not push those who want nothing more for me than a happy life away. I will not give up my will to fight. I will not yield.
