“When you don’t know how to say no, your body will say it for you.” – Dr. Gabor Maté

“When you don’t know how to say no, your body will say it for you.” – Dr. Gabor Maté. “When we have a symptom, or an illness, it’s not enough to say ‘How do I get rid of this? How do I wage a battle against this?’.

There’s another way to look at it.

…Your conflicts, all the difficult things, the problematic situations in your life are not chance or haphazard. They’re actually yours. They’re specifically yours, designed specifically for you, by a part of you that loves you more than anything else.

The part of you that loves you more than anything else has created roadblocks to lead you to yourself. You’re not going in the right direction and there’s something pricking you on the side that says, ‘Look Here. This way.’

The part of you that loves you so much, that doesn’t want you to lose that chance, will go to extreme measures to wake you up. It will make you suffer greatly if you don’t listen.

What else can it do? That’s its purpose.

…Most of the stress of human beings are emotional ones. And the biggest stress of all is trying to be who you’re not. 

So the maintenance of health really depends on knowing who you are, getting in touch with your body, getting in touch with your self, being mindful of all that, and honoring who you are.”
