You are so much more than your illness. Or, the DNA that your body is made with – good and not so good. You are so much more than how others perceive you. Your identity and value as a person, mother/father, spouse, employee, daughter, etc., is not defined by what society values most, or how someone else determines his/her self-worth.
Your worth isn’t determined by how you look, the clothes you wear, or the money you make.
Your value, your worth, the legacy you leave, is determined by your integrity, the life you choose to lead, and the impact you make on those you come in contact with.
