WE ARE NOT LESS THAN OR A VICTIM OF OUR BRAIN INJURY
The below articles and video presentation encourage individuals to see themselves in a different way.
DON’T LIMIT YOURSELF BY…
Limit yourself by attaching to and owning the title, designation or identification as a brain injury survivor.
LIMIT OURSELVES BY GIVING AWAY OUR POWER
You and I, although we are living with the impact of a brain injury, are not the identity our brain injuries.
We are much more than any diagnosis, prognosis, label, stereotype or stigmatization. We are much more than the expectations of other people. We are much more than the “box” that people may have put us in.
“If you want to improve your self-worth, stop giving other people the calculator.” Tim Fargo
WE ARE MEANT TO BE MORE THAN SURVIVORS
I wrote the below articles and created the video presentations to encourage individuals living with brain injuries to see themselves as thrivor’s, instead of as merely survivor’s of their brain injuries. To see themselves as empowered individuals, instead of as victims of the “fate” of having a brain injury. To see themselves through the eyes of possibilities, instead of through the eyes of limitation.
WHAT HAPPENED TO US
Our brain injuries do not define who we are as individuals. Our brain injuries were only an event that changed the course of our lives. By grieving what can not be changed we are able to learn to thrive in ways that work for us. By thriving in ways that work for us, we can create hope in our lives, well-beings and relationships. By thriving in life, we can pursue our dreams and our destinies, one day at a time.
