When I was injured as a pro athlete I felt I had really lost myself. I felt like my identity was stripped away from me.
I began comparing myself to my past — to what I could have been. I doubted my entire future.
Chances are you’ve been through something similar. Maybe it was the loss of a job. Maybe you lost someone you depended on emotionally.
I eventually came to a realization. I could continue down this self destructive path, feeling like a helpless victim in a cruel world, or I could take my destiny into my own hands.
In the end, I decided to have faith that maybe this happened for a greater cause. I felt like maybe I was meant for something else. Something more important.
