When I got injured, I went down some dangerous rabbit holes.
“I will never be able to do what I love again. It will get worse and worse. What if it gets so bad I can’t teach anymore???”
Comparing myself to my past self and to others
“I used to be able to do so much more.” “So-and-so broke her wrist and she healed faster than me. WHY??”
Simply giving up
“If I can’t do this posture anymore, I might as well do nothing at all.”
It took a lot of work and self-reflection to move past those thoughts.
And to be honest, it would have taken much longer if I did it on my own.
This is why it means so much to me to help my students navigate through this. To help them see all that they can still do.
That the pain doesn’t have to dictate their life.
That there is so much that they have control over, even if they can’t make the pain go away completely.
If this speaks to you, feel free to send me a message through the contact section. I’d love to know your experience.
