 What She Overcame 

Throughout my entire life, I was constantly playing as many sports as my schedule permitted. I never thought twice about it until my injuries occurred, which ultimately ended my sports career and my identity as I knew it.

Throughout this tumultuous time, I was also going through several personal life transitions/crises with which I struggled to cope in a healthy manner (or in any manner, actually).

 

I didn’t know who I was or what to do without sports as my outlet. This is when I started to realize that being an athlete could not be my sole identity, nor my sole mechanism to cope. I struggled to accept my physical limitations for years. My denial was strong, and I often pushed myself to “just go for a quick run” two weeks after a major surgery. (smh!)

When my body finally said enough was enough, I crashed, quickly and deeply, with a lack of purpose, desire, or motivation. Through self-exploration and support from family, friends, and mentors, I was able to create a new identity that wasn’t just tied to my sports performance. I learned that my identity can be in flux, changing as my seasons change. My identity is based on my character as a person and the many roles I enjoy today: wife, painter, therapist, and most excitedly, as a first-time mom!
