Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had to work around a different perspective, a perspective that would give me an understanding of what I was dealing with, around a disability I didn’t know I had.
When it comes to a life-changing scenario, any physical and mental challenge can transform us. It’s important to come to terms with what we deal with, because that way we’re more likely to cope better. When we cope better, we can think and be positive about what we deal with.
Always assess your circumstances from a different perspective, a perspective that helps you with your circumstances and an outcome you’re comfortable with. Emotional setbacks are slightly harder, because they’re not always recognised or understood by us.
That said, it’s important to stay and be positive with what we deal with: if we are ever faced with a physical or emotional challenge that becomes significant, we have to be able to adapt. Our first instinct is to want to revert back.
Sometimes we need to accept the life we had is gone. We have to learn how to deal with what’s in the now and move on.
