Just listening back to his voice editing together this week’s episode together was such a calming experience.
What it really said - or felt - like to me was when you have so much chaos in your life because of such a horrific experience like a brain injury, when you are surrounded by so much uncertainty, sometimes you just need to stop doing whatever it is you are doing for a second and have a look around at things in life.
In fact, I would just like to highlight or pick up on a couple of things he says, which I feel are important.
They were that there is proof that brain injuries do not just affect one person - which has almost become like a mantra to me throughout my recovery.
The second thing he said which struck a chord with me was how much support you need just to get through a brain injury from all of the different corners of society - especially somewhere like Headway, the National Brain Injury Charity.
As you will hopefully hear in the interview, Bharat revealed something to us which just literally floored me and just goes to show how low the levels of life a brain injury can plummet you to.
Finally, he also shared something which has become a bit of a theme throughout these interviews - especially for myself, personally.
That was when he said he thought he had become more of a ‘glass half full’ kind of guy because of his brain injury.
He said: “I now look at what I have got, and not what I haven’t got.”
That right there is something I connect with massively.
I, and many brain injury survivors I have met throughout this whole experience, are constantly trying to search for the positives from their brain injury as difficult as it may sound.
After two weeks of tragedies Bharat's messages are doubly important let us not lose confidence and alway endeavour to see the good in the world.
