I hear many people refer to MS as a monster, a mysterious entity that they have no control over, an evil creature who comes to attack them at will. Is this a bad story to be telling yourself? That depends. There are two ways to be in this story of the MS monster: one of them is useful, the other is not.
If you’re the hero on your journey , the myth of the monster is a central and very important element of your story. The monster is your challenge, and in order to receive the gift waiting for you at the end of your journey, you must survive it. This is a great and quite useful story to tell yourself, because it means that every trial you face because of MS is to get to that boon. For some people the boon might be as simple (but invaluable) as their health, for others it’s their life’s purpose. This story gives meaning to the problems you’re enduring and is a constant reminder of the journey you’re on and the gift you’ll receive when you defeat the monster.
