God gave me strength so for the first time, I am publicly sharing my facial wounds pictures from my car accident a few years ago.

Because of the physical trauma and emotional pain, I would cry a lot.

My tears would burn my wounds, so I could not even cry. I would face the floor while crying so my tears would fall on the floor.

I believe only by being vulnerable that we can provide inspiration and strength to others who may be facing difficulties right now. 🙏🏻

I share my life story to encourage anyone who may be going through hardship, to remain hopeful, and make decisions for seeking help and healing.

My facial wounds were caused by a car accident and post accident treatments. This was a few years ago, while I was in university.

It became the most painful period of my life.
My face bled for months.

Doctors were instructed to hide my face and remain enclosed for nearly a year.

Yet, I made the active decision to not hide from the world but actually find solutions for Healing while going back to university.

Within a few weeks, I went back to university.
My mom sewed extra wide brims on my hats so that I could protect myself from the harsh UVA sun lights.

Between classes, I would go to the restroom to apply and then reapply healing ointments.

In my dorm room, I would have extra fans to help ease the burning pain.

Even today, both sides of my bed have fans because, still, at times, I feel a lot of burning.

Q: How can we overcome challenges?
A: I believe that to overcome any adversity, step 1 is total acceptance. It is accepting one's situation with a calm mind.

Step 2 was about making the right "moment to moment" decisions and steps for recovery.

I constantly had to take intentional steps towards healing my emotional state and healing my physical condition ❤️‍🩹
