In the 1st part of this article, I shared with you that I had a spiritual awakening. My spiritual awakening revealed that I had unknowingly participated in the labeling process. My spiritual awakening revealed that I had unknowingly been classifying and categorizing individuals, such as myself who are living with brain injuries.
My spiritual awakening also revealed that I unknowingly assisted in perpetuating the notion of the label. In the process, I minimized and marginalized individuals, such as myself living with brain injuries. With my spiritual awakening, I made a decision to stop using a limiting an inaccurate label to describe myself and other individuals.
I made the decision to no longer refer to myself or to other individuals as traumatic brain injury survivors. I made the decision to start referring to individuals — such as myself — in an accurate and disempowering manner. I made the decision to begin referring to people, such as myself — as individual’s living with a brain injury.
Please read Part 4 for context. Thank you.
