Once you get sick, of course you want to get yourself better. But it is not always such an easy step. Sometimes you need to retrace the processes that got you sick in the first place, and you always need to learn the lesson behind the illness. Otherwise there would be no advantage in getting sick.
Sometimes getting better can be easy. You have a cold or flu, and allow yourself a few days off work, to stop and think, and to get out of the rat race. You may then be a bit more objective about your everyday behaviour and obligations.
