Traumatic Brain Injury and the Bully Revisited Part 1
Posted by Second Chance to Live on April 22, 2010
Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. I am honored by your presence. Yesterday I started a series, Traumatic Brain Injury and Finding Community Part 1. I will continue that series, however I feel led to share some additional information with you — as the information relates to part 1 of Traumatic Brain Injury and Finding Community.
My hope is that you will become aware of the bully and how the bully operates. My hope is that the information will help to empower your sense of true community.
In October 2007 I wrote and article, Traumatic Brain Injury and the Bully. In that article I shared with you how my life had been bullied. The bullying I am referring to was not of a physical nature, but one that impacted me at my very core. Through my experience and my process I shared what I discovered about the bully and how the bully minimized and marginalized who I was and what I had to give to the community.
Let me share that article with you.
Traumatic Brain Injury and the Bully
Hi, and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am glad to see you decided to stop by and visit with me. As a traumatic brain injury survivor I struggle with a sense of inadequacy at times. At times I listen to messages that seem to challenge me for not being more than I am today. I am encouraged to be more, but for some reason I simply do not believe I can be more.
Innuendos of shame — in these messages — trigger the notion that I am not enough, I don’t do enough and that I am unlovable. Unconsciously, shame seeks to discredit my desire to succeed in life through minimizing and marginalizing my best efforts. Please read my post, Whose Shame are you Carrying?
