Making friends as normal adults is hard enough, but to add a brain injury to that, that’s a whole other conundrum. Especially when your brain injury is ‘invisible’…

I think most of us – brain injury survivors — have big hearts and rose coloured glasses. We want to see the best in people, and because of our generous nature and willingness to accept differences, we are sometimes misled, used or manipulated. It can be hard for us to navigate social dynamics as we are often misunderstood queens and kings.

First, remember how resilient you are, you are a survivor after all– and let your strength and persistence keep moving you forward. Secondly, you will get better at listening to your gut, using your judgement and overcoming daily challenges. Finally, remember the immortal words of Chumbawamba – ‘I get knocked down, but I get up again, you’re never going to keep me down’. Repeat.

“I get knocked down, but I get up again, you’re never going to keep me down”
