Re: inspiring people

My dad inspires me, he's had cancer and a brain tumour (unrelated) and suffers a lot with side effects. but he is the nicest, happiest, most resilient person i know. he doesnt let his illness get to him and he is always doing his best no matter what is going on

Re: inspiring people

GREAT im glad you like the thread Smiley Happy


I think everyone here who is on the forums inspires me. they are all brave, kind and caring and despite differences or having a bad day there is still someone around to share your thoughts with.

everyone on here has their own story and by sharing inspiring other people to share theirs as well and to me to be brave and courageous enough to share you thoughts on here is inspiring. so i guess that makes all of you Smiley Happy

Re: inspiring people

this is such a good thread @scared01


I definitely would say my mum. She literally lets nothing stop her - she has type one diabetes but will still play on two different sports teams, run every day, have a thriving career and family, and still manage to be a balanced and calm person. Until recently she didn't have any qualifications, but worked her way to being the best in her area through hard work alone, and i remember her being like this ever since I was a kid. I love her so much if I could be half the person she is i would be happy. 


And another sort of narcissistic answer - I inspire myself! Sometimes I look back on my life and what I've done and think, you know, I'm actually doing pretty good. I can keep going. I've made it through all these other things, so I can face whatever challenge is facing me at that time.
