When we are victims of hurtful or painful things, we immediately play the victim. We become martyrs. Now I know it’s somewhat normal to act this way, we’re human after all. But, what we forget is that ultimately it’s up to us to get up, dust ourselves off, and move forward. Can’t depend on other people to make you whole, happy, or complete.
We all walk our own paths in life. We either make a mark, or just fade into the background. What kind of life, do you want to have? I know what kind I want. No more being a victim. No more playing a martyr. Life is better than that, no?
Got to learn how to deal with all the pain, hurt, and obstacles. We need to take one day at a time. If today doesn’t work out the way you want, try again. Just don’t get stuck. We are all broken, or have been broken to some degree. But we can be repaired, restored, reborn…
