One year ago, I could not even stand up without being in complete pain in my feet. I saw multiple specialists, but no one could seem to give me a concrete answer on what was wrong with my feet and how to fix it. I ended up in a wheelchair for eight months and thought I was never going to be able to walk again. For a while, I thought my life was over.
After a few weeks of dwelling on it, I hit absolute rock bottom. I was not able to go to high school parties with my friends, I could not stand in my shower, and I was embarrassed by my friends seeing me in my condition. I remember sobbing every night to my mom about how I felt like I was going to die before her. I would ask my mom, “why me?” “Why did this happen to me?” “Why does bad stuff always happen to me?” “What did I do to deserve this?”
Eventually, I was tired of feeling sorry for myself. I was miserable. I was in a bad place, mentally, physically, and emotionally. There needed to be a change. I had to change. I had to change the way I was viewing my situation, and I needed to change my thoughts. I decided to focus on the good in my life. I tried to think of “good” things in my life each day.
I had a fantastic support system to help me through this challenging time, my friends, and my family. Because I could not go out as much as I used to, I was able to spend more time reading and writing. Because I couldn’t work-out, I started eating healthier so that I could stay in shape. I thought about how lucky I was to have access to my phone so I could facetime and text with my close friends.
These are just a few examples of the way that I changed my thinking about my situation.
I no longer felt weak. I felt empowered. I love myself and dig deep to find the good within me and the good within the world. I took control of the situation I was in, and I urge anyone who is in an unfavorable position to do the same. Today, I still struggle with feet problems, but I continue to focus on the good. Just the fact that I now have the ability to walk, albeit with pain, is a “good” in itself.
