Intravenous Chicken Soup for the Soul
More Chicken Soup?
to Chicken Soup for the Surviving Soul I have been so
touched and inspired by the first two Chicken Soup books
that my foreword may turn out to be longer than the
book. On the other hand, I realized that I could also write
a one-word foreword. What is the one word? Love. I could
quote all the great spiritual leaders to emphasize this
point, but I think you, dear reader, know what I am saying, or you wouldn't be reading this book.
When we see an event that has an emotional impact
upon us, one of our choices is to repress the feelings it creates and bury them deep within. In my early years as a
physician I was very good at this. I thought I was protecting myself, but I was actually destroying myself. I finally
hurt enough to seek healing. Books like Chicken Soup for the
Soul were part of my healing because when you read, you
get in touch with your feelings. You can then express those
feelings so that you may heal your life and your body. So

inspiration that leads to transformation. For some, this

live— that they are not immortal. Well, none of
us are immortal, and so it is a lot wiser to read Chicken
Soup for the Surviving Soul and be inspired than to wait
until you have a life-threatening illness.
As I have said, my transformation came from my pain
as a physician, from storing everything inside me until I
suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, common to
so many people in today's society. My patients became
my teachers. In helping them learn how to live between
office visits, I was also learning about living. So please
accept your mortality and find happiness and love. You'll
also find that the first person you need to love is yourself.
Who are the best teachers? I find they are the people
who don't die when they are supposed to. They will
enlighten you about life. Tl\ey know they are not statistics, nor are they controlled by statistics. A medical student I know got angry when he read that his disease
invariably recurs, and seven years later he graduated
from medical school with no sign of the "incurable"
tumor. Others set out to create a more beautiful world
and get so busy they forget to die. They suddenly have

about being selfish. I can't believe how many people think
being happy is selfish. I am talking about people who contribute to the world in their own way, not the way someone else decides. As one woman said, "After I had done all
do before I died, I didn't die." Later
she wrote, "Now I'm so busy I'm killing myself. Help!
Where do I go from here?" I told her to take a nap. She
wasn't burning out, she was burning up.
Others decide to leave their troubles to God and then
get well. Let the problems in your life be your teachers.
Always describe your difficulties with words that express
your feelings. Then look at the things in your life that fit

You decide what you go through to give birth to yourself.
We also know that if you experience labor surrounded
by caring people, you have far less pain and far fewer
complications. So reach out for the help you need. Create
a mutual investment society with your family, friends and
health care providers. The stories contained here will
guide you in how to do that.
These stories will also teach you that life isn't about

So what can you do? Behave as if you are the person you
want to be. We know from studies that actors and actresses,
when simply playing a role, alter their body chemistry
depending upon the emotion they are portraying.
When you finish your Chicken Soup and are feeling better, decide who you want to be and start becoming your
new self. No one can change you but yourself, but a good
coach can help bring out the best in you. Let this book be
a coach or guide, but seek out other coaches, too.
I will close with one important thought. William Saroyan
writes, "Everyone alive is an actor but almost everyone
alive is a very pathetic actor/' He goes on to say that this is
why you are given a lifetime to learn to act like yourself. So
forgive yourself when you are not the person you want to
be. Then get out your baby picture, look at it and forgive
yourself. Then get on with being who you want to be.
