Please read Part 1 for context. Thank you.
In life we may feel that we have been given a raw deal. We may believe that life has dealt us an unfair stack of cards. We may feel that life and our circumstances are simply UNFAIR. We may be angry at God. We may feel like a victim. We may find ourselves wanting to blame someone.
We may find ourselves stuck in the what ifs, the could ofs and the should ofs. We may be angry at the world. We may be lashing out at the people in our world. We may feel frustrated. We may feel rejected and abandoned. We may feel that life is no longer worth living. We may feel like we can not trust the process, a loving God or ourselves.
We may find that we are so focused on what we can not do and what we see, that we can not see other options.
As an individual living with a brain injury and an invisible disability for 42 years I have cycled through each of these beliefs and feelings. In my experience, I have found a common theme. Although each of these beliefs and feelings appeared real and substantiated — at the time — my recovery process has taught me something completely different.
