It is hard to show our vulnerability at times. In general, society has defined expressing our vulnerabilities as being weak. But that is not true. Our greatest strengths lay in our vulnerabilities, and the courage to express them.
Over the last month or so, I have been very, very sad. February 7, 2015, was my twenty-first anniversary of being injured. I had now been injured half my life. This was always a weird time of year for me, but this year was different.
I was beside myself with a sadness that smothered me. I had no fight to overcome it whatsoever. This worried my husband, as it was so unlike my character. In my heart of hearts, I knew this grief was not about my injury. Not understanding why I felt the way I did was the worst part.
And so I took some of my own advice I have shared with you so many times; I reached out. And in doing so, I not only felt better, I discovered my answer.
