After attending a 4-day certification as a DOH HIV counselor, my perspective shifted from that being just-a-Filipino citizen to a citizen of the world for HIV awareness. The role plays that we need to do in pre and post test counseling gave me a picture of what it is to be in a small room giving results to reactive and non-reactive clients. It was like reality’s biting us, but we can never bite it back.

 

So before I make my way in a counseling room and deliver results, I want to “counsel” thru 10 inspirational quotes for our brother and sisters who have HIV/AIDS.

 

“If you can’t fly, then run, if you can’t run, then walk, if you can’t walk, then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

“HIV does not make people dangerous to know, so you can shake their hands and give them a hug: Heaven knows they need it.” — Princess Diana

 

“It’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” – Abe Lincoln

 

“At the beginning of the fourth decade of the HIV epidemic, profound stigma and discrimination is a fact of life for those with the disease—not just socially, but within our legal system.” – Sean Struth, HIV Activist

 

“One of the best ways to fight stigma and empower HIV-positive people is by speaking out openly and honestly about who we are and what we experience.” – Alex Garner, HIV Activist

 

“It is bad enough that people are dying of AIDS, but no one should die of ignorance.” – Elizabeth Taylor

 

“Being seen does have value. A voice does have value. I have the support of my boyfriend, my great friends, and my loving parents. Many do not and this is, in part, for them.” — Olympian Wallace on coming out with HIV

 

“We live in a completely interdependent world, which simply means we cannot escape each other. How we respond to AIDS, depends, in part, on whether we understand the interdependence. It is not someone else’s problem. This is everybody’s problem.” – Bill Clinton

 

“We are all in this together. No PLHIV is alone with his or her struggle with HIV!” – Pozzie Pinoy

 

“You can still live a possibly positive life despite being HIV positive. Turn your scars into stars.” – Anonymous

 

We must not take HIV/AIDS as an “accident” that will crush us later on our journey. Instead, we must look at it as a “purpose” to make us pursue more out of life. It’s still never too late. Move forward. You don’t need to be HIV positive to support a noble cause, you just have to be human.

 

Get to know the 5 ways to live positively despite being HIV positive.
