How to face physical and mental struggles?

From writing a memoir, I really hope that it helps me to not just understand more, but that others who are going through something similar can relate with me somehow. I really want to share my story of a physical struggle that can be mental as well and how great it feels to overcome it. Why we should not ever give up when times are tough? The reason is because it is a priceless feeling that brings a whole new perspective and teaches you so many new lessons about life. I really feel more comfortable sharing my experience of having a serious sports injury and being able to overcome it and continue with my life now in a positive manner. It will bring not just myself down, but others can be affected as well which makes it more important to come back stronger. I really hope others who have gone through a physical injury or even mental can see that we all will struggle, but we gotta keep on fighting. To not just save ourselves, but also be able to help others eventually who need assistance with their struggles. I got all the support for mine, but there is someone else who needs more help than me now. That is the biggest lesson of all, there is always someone more unfortunate than yourself. Appreciate what we got all got.

Memoir Ideas

1. Struggle and Recovery
When I was playing soccer in high school and I tore my meniscus, I had to face the biggest struggle in my life and then bounce back from it. It took a lot of time and patience which brought out a lot of negative emotions in my short life. I felt like my life was over was the mindset, but then I would learn to overcome the odds and bring my life back on track. Through painful rehab and listening to positive people who want to help you, I learned that I can get better and do better for others too that endured the same.

2. Key Relationship
I was never keen on having a relationship like most of my friends. I never liked dating or even cared because I was just into sports and focused on what my parents asked of me. Little did I know I would finally meet someone who I could connect to change my ways and it would be someone the exact opposite of me. It's really funny when they say "opposites attract". In a short time being together, I learned that maybe you can find that special someone early in life. Some of us are not really lucky, but I sure have to say I got lucky with my first try in my life. I feel blessed to have been given an amazing women to keep an eye out for me.

3. The Future
What will happen with my future? I aspire to go after accounting and get my CPA, but then the doubts always come to mind. The expectations of my parents were so high growing up and now I am really confused sometimes if I truly want to go down this path. Maybe it is just my negative thoughts because I enjoy what I want to go after, but then some gut feeling tells me to stop. My conscience is like out of place and it gets frustrating at times. If I can just succeed already, I would just be happy. I wish I could forward time another four years and see where I am at already. I know what I want, but I have to just be patient and let these negative thoughts stay out of my mind. I guess it is just a struggle truly between yourself and your thoughts as the biggest challenge these next few years. Choices will make a huge difference if you are not positive.
