Never think of yourself as a victim. Every battle you fight, every scar and every wound, every pit of despair that you rise from, every stumble and fall, every tear and every pang of pain, has given birth to a new you. Its created a unique, special someone who knows to never settle for anything but the best; someone who lives freely with dignity and honor, breaking away from shackles of the past. Someone who’s purpose in life is to look above and ahead and not be tied down by a defeatist mentality. When you quit victimizing yourself, thats when you will really see your emotional strength and the real you.
