Being brave is always worth it
It is easy to imagine a world in which we always win. The sound effects accent key moments and the soundtrack cues up at just the right times. In ordinary life what happens is that we get out in front leading the charge, only to stumble. We might end up with wounded pride or worse but we shouldn’t forget to learn how to walk first before we can run
In the fight against overcoming hearing loss, it can be tempting to go straight into battle mode. Choose your battles. Take one step at a time. Be brave. When the going gets tough and you are feeling defeated, be like Frozen and let it go! Try again tomorrow.
Remember, it is about more than the small losses. They are the small lessons you have to learn along the way to make it to the finish line.
