Sonríe en defensa propia


Nuevamente saludos a todos por aquí. Hace poco pregunté sobre qué tema les gustaría leerme y hubo personas que me dijeron que sobre mi visión de la "Resilencia".

Y es que ese "poder nuevo" del que se habla es el de saber sobreponerse a situaciones muy fuertes que nos pueden afectar como seres humanos; nos referimos a pérdidas de seres queridos, relaciones personales o laborales u otras situaciones de adversidad.


Yo puedo comenzar con lo que fue mi primer acercamiento con un ejemplo de resilencia.

Hubo una pareja que esperó con ansia la llegada de su primer hijo, apenas fue recibido al mundo la pediatra les dijo que "nunca llegaría a nada porque tenía Síndrome de Down". Esa frase, dicha a bocajarro los devastó.

La depresión, el buscar qué habían hecho mal los persiguió por un buen tiempo. Mientras tanto, Pablo, que así se llamaba el bebé, los fue enamorando como todo niño y los fue enseñando a través de una sonrisa que siempre iba a ser pura e inocente, que su tarea como padres apenas iniciaba.

Se prepararon para lo que debían afrontar. Leyeron mucho, buscaron ayuda, hicieron terapia.




Conforme Pablo iba creciendo lo llevaron a natación -porque también tuvo problemas de asma- y resultó que era bueno, muy bueno en eso.


Después le interesó la música y aprendió guitarra y batería. Aprendió, a su ritmo, a leer y escribir, a dominar no solo el español sino el inglés.

Tuvieron otro hijo y Pablo se convirtió en un hermano mayor cuidadoso y amoroso hasta que su hermano lo sobrepasó en estatura y se convirtió en otro escudo ante los que pretendían atacar a su hermano mayor.

Pablo se convirtió en atleta de alto rendimiento en las Olimpiadas Especiales y trajo a Venezuela varias medallas.




Sus padres, nunca se rindieron, solo se adaptaron a la realidad que les tocó enfrentar. Buscaron ayuda, se rodearon de gente que -como ellos- vivían la misma situación y juntos se apoyaron. Y sobre todo, aprendieron a refugiarse en la sonrisa pura e inocente de Pablo, en la mirada llena de amor en la que se reflejaban.

La resilencia es eso, combatir lo que nos daña sin miedo a aceptar que lo hace, pero entendiendo que depende de nosotros qué tanto nos afecta. Rodearte de gente que te pueda dar la mano y a la que no temas pedir ayuda y poder mirar atrás luego y... sonreír en defensa propia.



Pablo a sus mas de 30 años se mantiene en una lucha constante para seguir demostrando que nadie puede colocar frenos a los sueños de nadie y que su mirada está puesta en el futuro.


Some digital drawings
For several months now I switched to digital drawing. I had long saved up for an Ipad so I could work with the app “procreate” and oh my god, how happy I am with that investment. Coloring with pencils I barely do now. On the one hand a pity, but on the other hand it saves me a lot of pain in my hands. 😊 Hopefully you will like it at least as beautiful ❤🦊
