I could make a list of reasons why I could call myself a victim but I’m not going to.
I choose not to be one.
I choose to look at what has been done and said to me and transform it into a mantra instead of a path of destruction.
I choose to forgive myself and others and find within pain an opportunity to build a better future for myself.
I choose to be strong enough to accept my flaws and imperfections and let go of all that was not serving me anymore—toxic people included.
I choose to be strong. Strong enough to recognize that it all starts with me.
From the ability to hold my self accountable for my mistakes, and at the same time, being able to accept them.
So no, I am not a victim.
I never was and I never will be.
I am everything I was always supposed to be—and more.
