We need to stop being so hard on ourselves and putting ourselves down in the recovery process from brain injury.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed looking at everything you want to do, or how far you have to go. Remind yourself that improvement takes time, it happens little by little!
Just try to focus on what you can do this day… and that is enough.
Let’s be kind to ourselves as we continue on the journey!
If we strive for perfection, we can get frustrated. Like, "why can't I do what I used to be able to? Why is it so hard?" But if we are able to set smaller goals for improvement on the road to the larger goals, it helps us to see our progress more clearly! It can feel sad at first to set smaller goals, but think about how much the smaller goals will add up!
The brain is AMAZING. The neuroplasticity and new pathways it's capable of forming is so incredible. There is always HOPE. Healing is a process and we must be kind to ourselves as our brain is working hard on healing.💚
