Building Self-Esteem after Brain Injury
Self-esteem is slowly stripped away following a brain injury. The individual often find that their relationships have changed. The relationship they had with people and the relationship that they had with themselves. What was once familiar, may now seem foreign. What was once a way to build a sense of self may no longer work. As a result the individual living with a brain injury may have a difficult time relating to themselves and to other people. Articles in this category are written to help the individual living with a brain injury to re-build a relationship with themselves.
In the process of rebuilding a relationship with ourselves we gain a sense of self. In the process, we create our new sense of what it means to esteem ourselves. As we build a relationship with ourselves and gain a sense of self we gain the power to follow our dreams. Follow our dreams in ways that work for us. In the process we learn how to relate to other people in ways that work for us. In the process, we build self-esteem. Although our relationships may have changed, we discover the value of having a relationship with ourselves.
