2 Ways to Rise Up From Breast Cancer (Part 2)

Focus on Telling an Empowering Story

Our stories have power. They shape our understanding of the world, they help us to understand ourselves, and they help others to understand who we are and what we do.

The story you tell yourself and others about your breast cancer journey has a huge impact on your experience of breast cancer. Tell an empowering story that embodies your strengths, self-love & hope, and that inspires you when you to are struggling, in pain, feeling the feels, etc.

  • learn and grow

  • realize how strong I am

  • deepen my relationship with myself and others

  • discover my life purpose

  • build my resilience

  • be brave

  • love myself unconditionally

  • listen to my body

  • pay attention to my self talk

  • build self-awareness

  • speak kindly to myself

  • be proud of how I show up for myself

  • focus on what is within my control

  • keep things in perspective

  • decide on purpose what I want to think of the circumstances (breast cancer) in my life
