When you know your truth and you live it, then nothing and no one can stand in your way. On the journey to wholeness and healing, many who seek recovery find themselves stuck in a rutt because they live their lives like victims. They have given their power and have therefore relinquished their own ability to be strong for themselves. Thinking like a victim and acting like a victim suck the very joy out of life.
If you want to live a life that is free and beautiful, one that represents that self that you have always wanted to live, then accept responsibility for your role in the way that your life is now, and make a decision about the changes that you want to make in your life. Then start taking the steps to make those changes.
It is not an easy road, but it is one that is doable.
However, victims never take this journey. They sit on the side of the road sulking and complaining about what they do not have. But, you are not a victim. So, it is time to stand up and to start owning your journey.
