I found this first video a few days ago, of me trying to take a few steps by myself four years ago in November, 2012.
Later I found this one, taken a month later in the same place.
I really don’t know how to express how I feel every time I see these again, but I remember wondering if I would be able to walk again. I had those doubts but I never stopped trying. When you stop trying, that’t when you can’t.
You see how scared I looked in the first video? I was terrified I would fall, my legs were weak and I couldn’t even stand by without help, I had to be brave. If I wanted to walk, I had to be brave. Just a month later I had more balance, my legs were stronger and I could stand by myself. I still had a long way to go but the hardest part, getting up, was over.
I like charing these because I want people to know and see that they can make it, everybody can. Don’t give up and don’t let anybody tell you you can’t.
