Misleading Pinterest quotes

I found a quote on Pinterest.  It said:

“If you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working for it.”

thoughts-7

Yes.  This is supposed to be a an uplifting quote to help a person move forward in their life and succeed, but what if the subject is toxic?  What if the topic or issue that the person in question is pondering upon is detrimental to their mental or physical health?  Why should they work toward it?  This quote to me is misleading.

What are your thoughts?

 

Lost in the Stars

“I think about my mom’s note all the time – “Tell Meredith not to…” Not to cave? Not to care? Not to give up so easily? Not to fall in love? Not to have children? Not to tell a lie? She left me wondering what to do, what not to do. She left me knowing everything was up to me, and me alone. And, she left me with no one to ask so I would decide what she meant to write. Tell Meredith not to be afraid. Goodbye mom.”

-Meredith Grey/Grey’s Anatomy

I think about you daily

the things you’d do and say

I think about you until the night

And all along the day

And when it seems like all is lost

I gaze up at the stars

searching for honest answers

heeding words from …afar

 

 

This poem is dedicated to my Aunt Marie who passed away from Cancer at the beginning of March.  I miss her and think about her often.

Quote of the day

“There comes a point where it all becomes too much.  When we get too tired to fight anymore.  So we give up.  That’s when the real work begins.  To find hope where there seems to be absolutely none at all.”
