One of the hardest things for a survivor is to let go of the past, who we were. Not all who have had a brain injury totally lose who they are but many do, and I am one of those. Though i am just over 4 years into this journey there are many things I can not accept but I am working on it.
There are so many great things about this new me, I must now learn to apply that into living again for myself. I have so much to offer but I must learn balance and have some fun too. There is so much I want to accomplish but well structured plan is what I need to develop. I have so much love inside of me needing to share, but i must find the one I am will to give it to. In most cases we have became more incredible but we must learn how to access this new us.
We have to believe we are worth it and that takes time and work. The hating who I have become has lessened as time has past. Does not mean I don't go to that dark place now and again pondering that big why. There might now be no why just a what, what am I going to do with it (with me).
Be kind to yourselves this holiday season, and remember you are worth it and find those who you can give that of yourself which is priceless our essence our caring and love life is meant to live and those things are life, find your reason to live and build a plan a map of such showing and reminding you where you need and want to go.
