Sharing Hope in the Face of Adversity — One Piece at a Time

Understanding the People we Interact with as Traumatic Brain Injury Survivors Part 1 Video Presentation

Posted by Second Chance to Live on April 16, 2014

Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to have you around my table. You are always welcome here. Several days ago I wrote the article What Helped me to Accept Myself as a Traumatic Brain Injury Survivor. I did so to introduce several article series that I wrote in August of 2007.

The information that I shared in these 2 article series helped me to learn to accept myself as a traumatic brain injury survivor and as an individual living with an invisible disability.

In my first article series, My Struggle Living with an Invisible Disability I shared what helped me to understand what led me to and kept me struggling to accept myself as an individual living with the impact of a traumatic brain injury survivor and an invisible disability. These awareness’ gave me an increasing freedom to practice the principle of live and let live.

In the second series Having an Invisible Disability – The Consequences of Denying my Realty I shared the emotional and psychological factors that I needed to be aware of when interacting with family and friends who have a difficult time accepting my reality.Through gaining these awareness’ I was able to realize that it is better to seek to understand, than to seek to be understood.

With this being said, I will present Part 1 of the article series that helped me to accept myself as a traumatic brain injury survivor, To watch Part 1 of the article series, please click on this link:
