For many years I had no idea how I had internalized shame and guilt because of my brain injury.
In this video presentation of my article, I share what helped me to understand my guilt and shame after my brain injury.
The Power of Acceptance after My Brain Injury
In May 2008 I wrote a 7 part article series to share what helped me to grieve and get to a place of acceptance. A place of acceptance that helped me to stop being angry at what I was powerless to change. Acceptance helped me to find a freedom from guilt and shame that I experienced because of my brain injury. Acceptance helped me to realize that I could still live the life that I had hoped for before my brain injury. Acceptance helped me to realize that I could create hope in my life one day at a time.
