In a split second, things can change drastically.

In a split second, things can change drastically.

Going to see three different specialists, fracturing three bones, and the worst part, waiting.

As the team continues with their season, all you can do is wait. Wait to get healthy and in shape to play again.

Sports injuries, to put it blatantly, suck.

No matter how much you would like to help your team, all you can do is try to keep a positive attitude and encourage your teammates.

However, keeping a positive attitude is not always the best thing to do.

You might feel confident enough to play in the next game and going into it, you realize you’re ineffective which decreases confidence level. The only thing you get out of playing earlier than expected with an injury is even more leisure time.

Being patient is the key to bounce back from an injury which is a quite difficult task to achieve.

When an injury occurs, watching becomes one of the toughest things to do.

Watching your team practice, watching your team celebrate after they scored a goal, watching your team struggle against a tough opponent, knowing that, there’s merely nothing you can do to help your teammates but to rest and get better.

The return from an injury is merely only the beginning. You’re finally healthy and excited to rejoin the team but there’s just one problem, you’re behind.

While you were gone trying to rehabilitate yourself nothing stopped, everything kept on going as planned. Your teammates are faster than you, stronger than you, and more skilled than you.

You start to realize that the position that you once had has been taken by the other guy.

So there you have it, you’re right back at route one. The only way to get back to where you once were is to work hard and stay determined to get back in shape, and regain your skill.

I can assure you once you get there, the feeling of belonging again is priceless.
