Have you ever felt powerless over what you could not change? I have felt powerless, over the impact of my brain injury.
But through my ongoing process of recovery I discovered that although I am powerless over my brain injury, I am not helpless.
Through growing in awareness I had a spiritual awakening that helped me to realize that there is always a bridge of possibility.
A bridge of possibility over which I can pass through accepting the things that I can not change to discover what I can change.
Finding Freedom from Feeling Helpless
In the event that you find yourself powerless over your brain injury, grieve what you can not change. By grieving what we can not change, something amazing happens. We are able to let go of what we feel powerless to change.
As we to let go we are able to stop fighting with what we are powerless to change. When we stop fighting against what we can not change our eyes slowly open. Slowly open to what we can change. What we can change to empower ourselves in our powerlessness.
When I let go of what I could not change (would not work), I started to look for ways (that would work). I sat down with a piece of paper and pen and started to write. As I wrote I examined what I could change, despite over what I was powerless to change. As I wrote I began to see that I had other choices. Choices that helped me to see a bridge of possibility that gave me hope.
Something that has Helped me, May also Help You.
As you get to a place of acceptance, take out a pen and a piece of paper and write. As you write ask yourself what are the alternatives. Alternatives to what you can not change to empower yourself despite what you are powerless to change. Through examining these alternatives, you will begin to realize that you have choices. Choices that will help you to see a bridge of possibility.
A bridge of possibility that will help you to find freedom from feelings of helplessness. A bridge of possibility that will give you hope.
