Reclaiming our place within community

Often following injury, we withdraw. Over time, this becomes the norm, not the exception. Even the thought of entering busy crowded places can become overwhelming. We forget that often the reason these places are so busy is because they are generally where people are having fun. It’s not a threat, but a place of joy.

I was sitting in a restaurant, and there was a very happy large table of people beside me. It was clear that they were a group of friends having a great time midweek. I was delighted to recognize one of our Landing Strong Members among them. This person later shared that this is not something they would have been doing last year. Now it is a regular highlight of their week.

“I wouldn’t never have been able to be in a big group like that before doing group programs with Landing Strong.”

Participating in programs is an important step in recovering joy.

It allows us to gain comfort sharing and being seen by others.

Warm thoughts,
