Finding and Knowing Peace after Brain Injury
Finding peace after a brain injury can be very difficult. Questions arise, often too many that can not be answered. With a lack of answers comes a host of emotions, but not peace. Accepting what can not be understood seems out of the question."How can we accept what has changed our lives forever?" And so we find ourselves stuck and arguing at life. Arguing at life that gets us no where. In my experience, I found myself arguing with life. In the process, I fought against myself for many years. In the process, I unknowingly stayed my own adversary. And I remained my own adversary until I reached a point in my life. A point in my life when my need to deny my reality was overwhelmed by the pain of denying my reality. When I reached this point in my life I started to grieve my reality. In the process of working through my pain, I found that I was slowly able to stop blaming myself, God and other people.
As I was slowly able to stop blaming myself, God and other people a change occurred in my life. I was slowly able to accept some thing that was out of my control. Some thing that I could not change. As I grew in acceptance, I found that I had more peace in my life. Serenity to accept the things that I could not change. In the process of accepting what I could not change, I found hope. Through growing in acceptance I discovered that I was able to stop being my enemy. I was discovered that I could make peace with myself and the God of my understanding. I discovered that as I made peace with myself (in my reality) and with a loving God. As I made peace with myself and a loving God, I opened myself up to receiving help. As I opened myself up to receive help from a loving God I found peace. I discovered the power to change the things that I could in my life.
I discovered that I could stop fighting against myself and the God of my understanding. I discovered that I could start building some thing beautiful with my life.
