War Wounds!!! I share scars with so many people that are more than External but also Internal.. Recovery isn’t easy, it’s 🤬 !! Most Days it’s hard to see the inches took in rehab, Most Days You picking yourself up from falling, Most days you can’t put into words how much strain and will power is being used to get through your sessions. Fear, Frustration, Anxiousness, Discouragement sets in, and it’s so easy to feel sorry for yourself when you’re doing hard things. Uncomfortable Things!!! New Things!! The Same Things – that you can’t do as well yet!!! Never forget who you are or what got you to the point you’re at now, you made it this far despite what you been through and this is no different. Use Wisdom from others who have Journeyed through difficult times and Unexpected Setbacks as your guide, along with your own emotions and small/big victories. “Strength and Growth come only through continuous effort and struggle” I’m open about what my injury and surgery has done to me mentally because it has allowed me to grow in my mind, my spirit, and my body that I knew I had in me but had never been pushed this far. I’m excited about where my Rehab is at this point and looking forward to being even stronger and better than I have ever been before 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾 #StoryAlwaysBetterWithTheScarToProveIt P.S EveryBody that was talking shit last year, ima see you when I see you and I ain’t got shit to say 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 #🐺
