I see myself as weak. I think of the pain I experience and wonder, why can't I push through it better?
However, when I do not think I am showing any pain, more than once in this recovery people have commented that it looks painful. Well, my leg is painful.
Despite the fact that sometimes, maybe all the time, we don't want to show pain, we don't want to show our weaknesses, we need to be honest without ourselves and admit, it hurts. Only after admitting our weakness can we do the therapy necessary to heal and eliminate the problem. This honestly holds true for math skills in school and mental issues just as well as a bum leg. If there is a weakness, if there is a problem, do something about it!
