As we share our reality with our family and friends – one person at a time – we advocate for both our-selves and for other people who are living with traumatic and acquired brain injuries. Through educating one person at a time, we subsequently empower both our lives and the lives of individuals who are living with brain injuries. By doing so we actively engage in spreading brain injury awareness.
“You don’t have to be a person of influence to be influential. In fact, the most influential people in my life are probably not even aware of the things they’ve taught me.” Scott Adams cartoonist.
My strong recommendation for families and friends of individuals who have sustained brain injuries, educate yourself. Go online and through the various search engines research how the damage / injury to your loved one’s brain has impacted or impaired their cognitive functioning and their social skills. By doing so you will both be able to support and enhance your relationship with your brain injury survivor.
“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.” Helen Keller
