A victim is that person who has been in a position from where survival became impossible under the trap, whereas survivor is that person WHO MADE IT THROUGH THAT TOUGH TIME AND STILL STANDING HERE TALL WITH US. Most of us have come down in positions of life where we felt like something is dragging us at our past and never letting us walk away, but in reality with every step you walking far away from that heart breaking moment in your life that nearly shook you to all extents. Getting bullied in school , facing an tremendous disastrous accident or being abused/ raped all these incidents generally which can be classified under PTSD , always have chances to make you feel like a victim. You might spend hours asking yourself why always me. You might spend your days hiding yourself or isolating your beautiful soul away from this world. But you forget 1 small thing at least you hear today with us which makes you a person who ” SURVIVED AND WON THE BATTLE”
Remember it always that you still have a chance , you still have a chance to see a better sunrise tomorrow, you still have a chance to see another solar eclipse you still have a chance to get the man/woman of your life and spend your life with him/her, Nothing is lost its all there with you these all are the smallest gifts that life has given you to be a ” SURVIVOR INSTEAD OF BEING A VICTIM” think about those for a moment who has lost their lives in a brutal war, think about those who got bullied and ended their lives they can be said the ones who are victims because they missed the CHANCE TO LIVE THAT YOU STILL HAVE IN YOUR HANDS. they missed the chance TO DECORATE THEIR LIVES THE WAY THEY WANTED IT TO BE. Maybe you have faced a set back i agree maybe tough bullying have made you lose your self esteem maybe a abuse has made you feel like you can never be with someone, but you have never lost the chance to step back and make it better 🙂 The future remains unknown forever but atleast when there is hope there is a win for sure 🙂
YOU ARE NEVER EVER A VICTIM. think about it for ones , has anything in life stopped forever?? you still LAUGH WHEN SOMEONE CRACKS A JOKE , YOU STILL TAKE A BREATH WHEN YOU SEE YOUR CRUSH, YOU STILL SMILE LICKING YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM, YOU STILL DROP A TEAR FROM YOUR EYES WHEN YOU HEAR A BAD NEWS, YOU STILL FEEL LIKE YOUR FEET SHOULD DANCE IN THE MUSIC, YOU STILL LOVE SEEING YOUR TEAM WIN, YOU STILL LOVE TO SNUGGLE AND SLEEP WITH YOUR LOVE. SO HAS ANYTHING ACTUALLY CHANGED IN YOUR LIFE ?? THAT YOU HAVE TO CONSIDER YOURSELF AS A VICTIM??
yes maybe you lost a part of your self confidence, yes maybe you start panicking a bit now maybe you are bit afraid now of new situations but believe me the MAJOR PART OF YOUR LIFE IS STILL THE WAY IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN.
NOTHING HAS CHANGED , WHAT HAS CHANGED IS ONLY YOUR PERCEPTION ON YOURSELF IN WHICH NOW YOU DONT WANT TO RESPECT AND LOVE YOURSELF WHEN YOU COMPLETELY DESERVE TO DO IT 🙂 YOU DESERVE TO SOMEDAY STAND IN FRONT OF THE MIRROR AND SALUTE THE PERSON YOU SEE THERE BECAUSE THAT PERSON HAS WALKED THROUGH THE VALLEYS OF DEAD WITHOUT BEING SCARED EVEN FOR A SECOND .
WE all have some stories inside my dear friends which is a source of inspiration to others that is why you are not a victim, but a influential person who has influenced many to stay alive and be courageous to speak out. be proud of yourself to be a survivor a proud survivor.
