Your experiences are amazing, and I love reading about them. And your attitude is inspiring!

But I always worry that those people who have a chemical depression, for instance, who cannot yet find it within themselves to just "shine from within," or who are having a very difficult time dealing with an illness or a diagnosis, will then feel guilty if they can't also feel like an unbeatable warrior. Perhaps they are only able to take baby steps toward healing instead of a full-out assault. Maybe their anxiety is overwhelming. Or (very common these days) perhaps their financial situation gets so out of hand with medical expenses that the stress actually makes their recovery more difficult.

What would you say to these people? People for whom your optimism would seem very hard to find within themselves?
