Yesterday, I wrote about how I experience times of discouragement/depression post my brain injury. It is just part of my life now and I’m learning how to function through the fog until it lifts. Each time I go through a cycle of being down, I learn something that helps me stay a little more afloat. In response to yesterdays blog I received a few emails asking how I manage through these more difficult times. I thought I’d share a few thoughts here.
Discouragement and depression beckon that there is no hope and that nothing could possibly turn around. While those feeling may indeed be strong, I do not have to live as a slave to them. I have the ability to rule my thoughts and choose well. Even when I’m down I make the choice to put my trust in God. That is the biggest burden lifter of all.
