When she got burned eight months ago, Julie made a life-saving decision. She resolved that her terrible burn and the trauma that followed was not going to end her happiness.
Julie, who also goes by the nickname "Ju_superhuman" on her Instagram page, decided to be brutally honest and open about her recovery mentally and physically.
"I made it my business to share my experience because I learned that so many more people in this world struggled with accepting themselves whether it was internal or external scarring. I never wanted people to think this was easy but I also didn’t want them to think this was something they couldn’t overcome," she says.
Her world changed after the burn, which left her with terrible and scary scars on her body. But she was determined to reclaim her happiness back.
"These eight months have been a roller-coaster. My world was changing and I had to catch up. In my eyes I wanted things to move faster than they were. Time and time again the people around me would stress the importance of being patient! Time is a great teacher and life never goes as planned," she says.
Eight months later, she has learned to trust time.
"Things won’t usually go how we imagine or when we expected but the timing is always right. When we least expect it our lives can change and if we are patient enough to learn the lessons being taught, it can become a beautiful experience," says Julie.
Her reasons for sharing this story is to inspire and strengthen other burn victims out there who are also on their recovery journey. Julie believes that time will heal all their wounds.
