Esta chica muestra su mayor defecto en Instagram para dar al mundo una valiosa lección2shares

Los seres humanos somos realmente complejos y, debido a esto, en ocasiones perdemos un valioso tiempo ocupándonos de banalidades en vez de disfrutar a plenitud las oportunidades maravillosas que la vida nos presenta, aunque sean totalmente diferentes a las que alguna vez tuviste en mente. Hay quienes desaprovechan nuestra capacidad de adaptación quejándose hasta de lo más insignificante y, más tarde que temprano, te darás cuenta que esa actitud será más una perdición y condena que una 

En mayor o menor medida, todos hemos sido culpables de ser demasiado orgullosos o demasiado frívolos. Algunos nos obsesionamos con la imperfección más pequeña y tonta que en realidad no tiene ninguna consecuencia en el mundo que nos rodea. Pero podríamos aprender una cosa o dos de una valiente chica de Instagram, que recientemente compartió una foto exponiendo sus propios "defectos" con la esperanza de poder inspirar a otros a vivir más libremente. recogió lo más interesante sobre su asombroso testimonio de vida.

A sus 25 años, Emma Carey ha debido emprender una increíble aventura luego de sufrir un aparatoso accidente de paracaidismo en el 2013.

A esta chica, oriunda de Queensland, Australia, le dijeron que pasaría el resto de su vida en una silla de ruedas, pero milagrosamente, logró encontrar la fuerza para volver a caminar.

GUYSSSS GUESS WHAT?! 🙈🙈🙈 we did something absolutely amazing together!! Remember how last week I said that for 24 hours I would donate 100% of the profits from my drawings? Well drumroll... Together we raised $10,230 for the spinal cord injury clinical trials!! I am so overwhelmed and blown away by all of your support, generosity and messages about how spinal cord injuries have touched your lives as well. From the bottom of my heart, thank you thank you thank you. These trials mean the world to me and my friends who want to get back up on their feet and this is one step closer to making it a reality. The people at @makingstridesau and @perryxfndn are all extremely grateful for your help 💛 Oooo and by the way... You know how I told you I have a surprise for you guys coming on my rebirthday? Well it’s not until next week buuuut this pic is your second #clue 😉 any guesses?

Sin embargo, ella no se libró del incidente completamente ilesa.

En su cuenta personal de Instagram ha demostrado en varias oportunidades que aún sufre un extraño efecto secundario de su devastadora lesión en la médula espinal.

Afirma que su motivación a explicarle al mundo su situación ha sido la difusión masiva que han tenido sus fotografías.

"He visto esta foto rodando por Internet últimamente, así que pensé en tomarme un momento para hablar sobre mis pantalones cubiertos de orina".

I’ve seen this photo floating around the internet lately so thought I’d take a moment to chat about my pee covered pants. This is what I look like every. single. day. Multiple times a day. I think because I can walk, people tend to think I have completely recovered from my spinal cord injury but the truth is I still have many lasting effects, one of them being that I am completely incontinent with both my bladder and bowels. At first I was so embarrassed by this and tried to keep it a secret. I didn’t leave the house because I was so worried that people would find out. I wouldn’t tell anyone why I had to be near a toilet at all times. I wouldn’t let anyone see my catheters or pads. I would run away and hide every time I had an accident. It was exhausting trying to keep it a secret, so instead I just didn’t let anyone close to me. It wasn’t long until I realised that if I was going to get upset and angry every time I peed myself, it would mean that I would be upset and angry every single day of my life. For the rest of my life. And that’s when it hit me.. I survived a bloody skydiving accident. I don’t know how or why but I know that it certainly wasn’t to live a depressing life. I owed myself way more than that. Now it’s five years later and I don’t think I have a single friend that hasn’t seen me pee. I tell people about my incontinence generally within 10 minutes of meeting them. And now I’m posting a picture of my pee covered pants to over 100,000 people without a second thought. The point of this isn’t for sympathy or for praise, it’s to show you that it is completely and entirely possible to not give a single sh*t about the things that people expect you to care about. Just because we have grown up to believe that certain things are taboo or shouldn’t be spoken about, doesn’t mean that they are. Just because people think you should feel embarrassed about something, doesn’t mean you need to. Just because people might judge you on a certain thing, doesn’t mean you need to care. How you feel about certain situations is entirely up to you. If you own your life and all your ‘flaws’, they will never be able to own you. It’s the most freeing thing in the world.

Comenzó su testimonio revelando que detrás de su recuperación hay muchos detalles que la gente desconoce.

"Así me veo cada día. Muchas veces al día. Creo que porque puedo caminar, la gente tiende a pensar que me he recuperado completamente de la lesión en la médula espinal, pero la verdad es que todavía tengo muchos efectos duraderos, uno de ellos es que soy completamente incontinente con mi vejiga y mis intestinos."

This chick here is my idol. I have absolutely no idea how I got from her to here, but I’m so proud of her. For anyone who saw my interview last night, you would have learnt some more about my story and how I definitely wasn’t always the ‘happy’ and ‘inspiring’ girl people think I was. Things were hard and I didn’t want to deal with it. I didn’t know how and I didn’t think I could. I couldn’t imagine that there could ever possibly be even a hint of light at the end of the tunnel, let alone an infinity of it. This girl here (aka me 5 years ago), taught me that constant jokes, chucking siiiick peace signs up at inappropriate times, belly laughs and making people smile is how to make life better again. Thank you so so much for all of the overwhelming support and to anyone who’s new here, welcome to Make Someone’s Monday! On Mondays we join together to spread some love around the globe by complimenting a stranger and making them smile. It’s easy... Insta stalk the person in the comment above you and leave a compliment for them in the comments here. See how it makes you feel 😉 go!

Prosigue con la frase "Al principio estaba tan avergonzada por esto y traté de mantenerlo en secreto."

Pero después de luchar durante largo tiempo, Emma finalmente se encontró en un punto de inflexión particularmente liberador.

¡Bueeeeenoos días!! ¿quién está emocionado por esta semana? ... Yo lo estoy, porque estoy en el proceso de crear algo muy especial para todos ustedes amigos y que creo que amarán. 

Recuerda cómo el temor al qué dirán la invadió por completo.

"No salía de la casa porque estaba tan preocupada de que la gente se enterara. No le diría a nadie por qué tenía que estar cerca de un inodoro todo el tiempo. No dejaría que nadie viera mis catéteres o mis almohadillas. huiría y me escondería cada vez que tuviera un accidente."

Today somebody saw the sun rise over the ocean for the first time. Today somebody fell in love. Today somebody survived something that could have killed them. Today somebody married the love of their life. Today somebody took their first steps. Today somebody finally closed a chapter that was hurting them and opened a new page. Today somebody said ‘I love you’ for the first time. Today somebody had the best day of their life. Maybe today it wasn’t you, but isn’t it nice to know that for someone out there it was? Isn’t it nice to know that right at this very moment, someone, somewhere in this crazy world we share is having the best day of their life? Maybe today it wasn't you and maybe it hasn’t been you for this entire year, but maybe tomorrow it will be and isn’t that nice to know? 💭 📷 @jakerichtravels

A pesar de sus esfuerzos, ese estilo de vida terminó por sumirla en un profundo cansancio y soledad.

"Era agotador tratar de mantenerlo en secreto, así que en cambio simplemente no dejé a nadie cerca de mí".

Su desesperación la condujo a una trascendental revelación:

"No pasó mucho tiempo hasta que me di cuenta de que si me iba a enojar cada vez que me orinaba, significaría que estaría enojada todos los días de mi vida. Por el resto de mi vida."

"Y fue entonces cuando caí en cuenta... sobreviví a un sangriento accidente de paracaidismo."

No cualquiera puede presumir de esto.

"No sé cómo ni por qué, pero sé que ciertamente no era para llevar una vida deprimente. Me merecía mucho más que eso" se dijo a sí misma.

Sometimes ya just gotta lol at life 😝 Yesterday morning I was sitting on the floor packing my bag and was about to run out the door to catch a flight. As you can probably tell from the half-packed bag still on my floor... I never made my flight. I tried to stand up and all of a sudden my knee locked and I couldn’t straighten it. I yelled out to @elle_fit to come and help me straighten it and we did. I thought it was fine but as soon as I tried to put weight on it, I felt the most intense pain and felt like it was going to crumble. I fell to the ground aaand haven’t been able to walk on it since 😬 I just had an MRI so fingers crossed it’s nothing major because these legs are beyond ready to roll 😅😅😅 #healtheknee #yakidding

A partir de allí, dio un giro de 360 grados a su actitud.

"Ahora han transcurrido cinco años después y no creo que tenga un solo amigo que no me haya visto hacer pipí. Le hablo a la gente sobre mi incontinencia en general a los 10 minutos de conocerlos. Y ahora estoy publicando una foto de mis pantalones cubiertos de orina a más de 100.000 personas sin pensarlo dos veces."

Fun fact: I have metal rods and a cage in my spine from T11 to L2, if you zoom in on this pic you can kind of see my scar. Sometimes I don’t notice the metal and can easily forget its there. Sometimes when I try to bend in a certain way, my spine stops me and I suddenly remember that a large part of it is fused. Sometimes it hurts so much that I can’t even sleep through the pain. Tonight seems to be one of those nights (I may or may not have gone too hard out assembling all of our IKEA furniture 😂). I’m laying in bed but I have a feeling I’ll be awake for quite a while tonight, so would love to chat more to you guys while I have the chance! I’ve been getting a lot of DM’s lately and unfortunately I can’t reply to all of them, so I was thinking we could do a little Q&A here instead. If you have any questions you’ve been wanting to ask or anything you’d like to share with me, leave a comment and we can have a chat 💛

Emma explicó que lo hizo como un medio para ayudar a los demás a 'apropiarse' tanto de sus vidas como de sus defectos, y agregó: 

"El objetivo de esto no es la simpatía o el elogio, es mostrarles que es total y completamente posible no mortificarte en las cosas que la gente espera que te importen."

So I realized that you guys know the absolute depths of my soul when it comes to my accident and emotions but you probably don’t know a lot of the everyday things about me. So here’s some random facts about me: 1. Scuba diving and sitting on cliff edges are my favourite things in the world 2. I have 2 sisters, one older and one younger 3. I never wear makeup and always wear the least amount of clothing possible because I hate things touching my skin 4. I’m partially deaf in one ear and have had more surgeries on it than I can remember 5. I’m obsessed with sharks and the number one thing on my bucket list is free diving with tiger sharks in the bahamas 6. I LOVE fun facts 7. I have 10 surgical scars on my body 8. I eat more than anyone I know and don’t ever feel full 9. I’m super impulsive and spontaneous and genuinely won’t make plans more than a week in advance 10. If I could choose to be anything in the world it would be a singer or base jumper 11. I’m not overly opinionated about anything and can always keep an open mind but the one thing I’m extremely passionate about is not doing drugs 12. I’m a qualified personal trainer 13. My favourite qualities in a person are kindness, confidence and enthusiasm for life There ya go! Now tell me a fun fact about YOU because I want to get to know you guys better too 😊 x

Para finalizar, le dejó a sus seguidores esta conmovedora reflexión:

"El hecho de que hayamos crecido y creamos que ciertas cosas son tabú o de las que no se debería hablar, no significa que lo sean. El hecho de que las personas piensen que debes avergonzarte por algo no significa que necesites hacerlo, porque las personas pueden juzgarlo en cierta forma, no significa que deba preocuparte. Cómo te sientes acerca de ciertas situaciones depende completamente de ti".

Crazy how mother nature always finds a way to give you exactly what you need, exactly when you need it. If you watch my insta stories, you'd know that at the start of this week I was a little bit stressed and upset. So this week I've slowed down completely and finally let myself rest after months of trying to pretend I'm in a body that doesn't need healing, when clearly mine does. If you know me, you'd know that I am someone that hates sitting still and always wants to be out adventuring and doing absolutely everything I can, so to stay in bed for most of the week was a little bit of a challenge. But guess what? I've found calmness and I've got my smile back. It's been a seriously hectic year so far, so taking time to do absolutely nothing has been exactly what I needed and well overdue. I love that you guys can tell the difference in me and always comment on how you can see I'm looking like myself again. It lets me know that I'm doing a good job at showing my real self online which is all I've ever wanted to do on here. So thanks universe for painting the sky tonight and thanks to you guys for sticking with me through the ups and the downs and always showing me endless love. Ps. Such a classic emma pose #everytime ✌🏻😜
