This is the ever-resounding creed of my life. In the absence, I would fall and never come back to the light.
“Don’t be a victim.”
Say it to yourself. Scream it into the dark that threatens to envelop you. Whisper it feebly when it takes the last of your ever elusive strength.
Don’t let this world crush your sweet and precious spirit. Don’t let the ugly bring you down to its level. Don’t let the circumstances in your life define who you are. You are worth it. You are amazing.
Don’t become what has happened to you. Figure out who you are and be amazed by the beauty of yourself.
