Losing a Part of My Identity

Posted by Mandy Camarillo on Sun 30th May 2021 2:31am

I was into sports and still am but I am not as good as I used to be after having that leg injury.  I spent months rehabilitating with the hope of getting back to the game. Unfortunately, this body has reached its limitation leaving me hopeless. During that process though, I managed to let my mind wander about things outside the game. And I have to say, transitions are the biggest challenges of life because it’s almost like starting from scratch and learning to commit again to something different from your previous identity. I deeply treasure the people who were patient with me during the recovery process as it has been the hardest for me physically, emotionally, and mentally.
