Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to have you around my table. Several weeks ago I wrote, the article, So…Where Do I Fit Following My Brain Injury?. In this article I share what helped me to find where I fit following my brain injury. In today’s article I would like to introduce a video presentation of the article. I create video presentations of my articles for individuals who learn through watching and listening. In this video presentation I will share what I discovered that helped me to find where I fit, following my brain injury.
Below is an excerpt from the complete article:
“Yesterday I received a comment to an article that I recently wrote and published, Creating after Brain Injury. As I thought about the comment some thoughts came to mind. Following a brain injury many of us ask the question. “So…Where do I fit?” Below I would like to share what helped me to answer that question for myself. The answer did not come “over night” but formed with time. I share that the answer (s) took time for me, so that if the answers do not come to you “over night” you, won’t be discouraged. Hang in there and don’t give up! The answer (s) will come to you.
The answers and the clarity did not come “over night” but became clear to me with time. I share that the answer took time for me, so that if the answer (s) does not come to you “over night” that you will not be discouraged. Hang in there and keep searching. Don’t give up! The answer (s) and the clarity will come to you. You will find where you fit following your brain injury. You will learn to build some thing beautiful on your lot in life. Be encouraged my friend. More will be revealed to you and to me with and in time.
In an article that I wrote and published on December 5, 2015 Brain Injury and What Might Have Been I spoke to the question of “Why?” For individuals who experience traumatic or acquired brain injuries the question of “why?” travels in the wake of the circumstances that led to our tbi or abi. Many times “why?” unknowingly becomes an “under tow” for the brain injury survivor once their external wounds have healed. “Why” becomes the “under tow” that keeps us gasping for air as the waves of reason “pull us under”, time after time.
The “under tow” of “why?” gives way to a denial system that leads us to believe “its” all up in our head and that we need to snap out of “it”. When we find that we are unable to snap out of “it” denial becomes an adversary that mocks us for not being more. Denial then unconsciously sets us off on pilgrimage to prove that we are not impacted by what we can not accept about ourselves. Denial thus serves to keep us “stuck.” But thank God, we do not have to stay stuck. We can grow where our feet are planted.”
