NHBPM Day 16

Little Engine Post.


When thinking about stigma, awareness, the healthcare system, and other big picture ideas – it’s easy to become overwhelmed. When we feel burned out, doubts creep in and we start thinking, “Maybe I can’t do this.” This happens to all of us – Health Activists are no exception. In fact, dealing with a health condition and managing a health community makes staying positive even more challenging.


Sometimes we worry we aren’t making enough of a difference. We’re perfectionists and over-achievers – and that’s ok. Because – guess what? You are making a difference and doing great things – no matter how small they may seem at times. Today’s post is about turning our doubts around – turn our “I can’t” into “I can.”


Write a list post with 10-15 lines that start each with “I think I can…”


Write 5 lines at the end that start with “I know I can.”


If it’s easier for you to write a quick list of “I can’t” or “I think I can’t” items and then turning each around – that works too. Sometimes it’s important to know what our doubts are so we can help address them. But let’s try to remember that – especially when we all work together at this awareness thing – we’re doing something great.
