You and I no longer need to believe that our brain injuries are blocks to achieving our destinies. We can believe that our brain injuries is merely a switch on the railroad of life that is leading us “down the track” to our destinies. We can pursue our hopes and dreams.
That is why if you are putting labels on yourself, stop. If you are placing labels and limitations on other people, stop. If you have people in your life who want to place labels on you, remember that you have a choice. What people think of you or I does not make it so. What matters is what we think about ourselves.
We no longer need to believe we are victims. We no longer need to believe that we are limited because of our brain injuries because you and I are not our brain injuries. You and I are so much more than our brain injuries, deficits or limitations.
That is why we need to challenge the notion that who we are as individuals that is based on a label. That is why we need to challenge our inner thoughts when we feel classified, categorized and limited by faulty information, bias or prejudice. That is why we need to celebrate who we are as individuals.
That is why we need to learn how to use our gifts, talents, and abilities in ways that work for us. That is why we need to be heard. That is why we need to push back and dispel the tide of ignorance by being all that we can be as individuals living with brain injuries.
