Best Advice to Keep Pushing Forward After a Brain Injury

Artist Ginny Ruffner's advice to others with TBI: "Persist! Keep doing it, trying it, pushing it, saying no I'm not stopping it. Keep Going!"

What I would tell someone with a brain injury is the same thing I would tell a young artist who comes in my life, "I'm stuck," or "How do I get to the next level?" Persist. Persist. I never understood that phrase about how the majority of it is just showing up. But it's true. Just keeping on doing it, trying, pushing, and saying, "Nope. I'm not stopping." And that's true for young artists or brain injury people, I think. Just keep going.
