Broken or Healing?
“Switch your mentality from ‘I’m broken and helpless’ to ‘I’m growing and healing’ and watch how fast your life changes, for the better”
This quote helped me a lot in my mindset. A few months back I got hit by a car (as I was on my bike) and as a result, I suffer from a severe concussion and a whiplash. So far, it has been so hard to stay positive through the constant pain and tiredness. What I found especially hard is that I could no longer live the life I was living, because of the pain and because everything I did was extra staining on my body. For a long time I was not allowed to exercise and the little I had to do to regain strength, would put me out of commission again for a few days.
I felt extremely “broken and helpless” and had very little patience in taking care of myself and letting myself heal. I would often find myself in tears over my frustration with the whole situation. So this quote really spoke to me as it voices what my (lovely and utterly amazing) surroundings have been telling and urging me the past few months: love yourself enough to let yourself heal. Of course, I still get frustrated at times and feel completely trapped in my own body as I am still healing. But now I sit myself down and say “I’m growing and healing” and this immediately makes me feel better. I hope you will find the same strength and compassion for yourself!
