Being Yourself Is More Than Enough

Posted on May 14, 2018

"After years of feeling like I need to be better, stronger, healthier, and in control, I now know I am enough." -Member of myHIVteam

Members of myHIVteam experience the burden of HIV physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Sometimes we strive to appear healthier than we are to avoid the stigma of HIV. Other times, we experience relief and support from peers who've been in our shoes.

"I'm getting out of the rat race. I'm not hiding my struggles anymore. If I'm tired, I'm going to rest. Hearing from others with HIV has taught me that I have to prioritize ME." - Member of myHIVteam

Here are recent conversations from members on myHIVteam:

"I'm still feeling grateful! I Hope you have a wonderful day no matter where you are and know that you are loved and treasured."

"This is a good life and if I remember to be grateful for what I do have (roof over my head, did in my stomach, clothes, and shoes, a bed to lie in, a toothbrush) things I didn't always have, I'll be happier. Have a great day, you lovely people."

"Another great day in the making! Be thankful for all that you have!
Be kind.
Be gentle.
Be grateful.
"


Have you found yourself striving to appear as though you have it all together? Have you discovered ways to surround yourself with others who make you feel that you are more than enough? Share what you've learned in the comments below or directly on myHIVteam.com.
