How do you stay positive during recovery? I played tennis when I was younger, and had to have 3 knee surgeries, which let to sitting out two seasons. I found it most difficult to be patient with the entire process
It'sone of the first times, that too for a whole lot of people than you are used to. You are allowed to feel anxious and even stressed. The little anxiety will infact keep you alert. But if the stress is getting to you, then you need to ask yourself if it's driven by a need to 'be perfect' or to 'please others'. Acknowledging your fear verbally helps too. Then concentrate on the process of cooking / buying gifts without worrying about how it might turn out or what others would think. You did your best and that's what counts!
