Last month I learned a lot from my pals!
I’m so glad many of them spent their time writing for Aquarius vs Cancer. Again, thank you friends for participating! Based on the feedback I received, readers found it as useful as I did. I admit I had some “so that’s why you did that?” and “wow, you really think I’m that neat-o?” moments. Oodles of tears were generated while posting and reading them.
1. An explanation of why some individuals get scarce after the cancer diagnosis. Often times I hear patients and caretakers say, “Some people stop coming around/calling/writing because they don’t handle the situation very well.” Sure, that could be true for some but it could also be incorrect. I learned that some people simply did not want to be in the way. I guess that makes sense!
2. People don’t try to avoid talking about cancer to me. Many people figure if I want to talk about it I will bring it up. They are not unwilling to talk about it, they just don’t want to bring up a sore subject. It’s similar to knowing someone hates their job or is going through a break-up…you don’t constantly ask about it, right?
These may be no-brainers for a clear mind, but for me, they were ah-ha moments. I’m excited to have more of them in 2014!
