    I Manged To Put A Stop To It.

    I started being bullied at around 7 years old. It never bothered me. But when I moved to secondary school it seemed to change. People seemed to be just generally more harsh. It used to really upset me. One day I woke up and thought, I'm not going to stand for this anymore. So...

    I just went for my first jog

    since he attacked me. I could have died I was so terrified by every noise and shuffle in the bushes. I screamed when a bunny rabbit ran past me on the track. But I did it! I ran again. I won't let him win!

    Very violently raped

    when I was 15-16, beaten by two different ex's at 22 and 30. 41 years old now and haven't felt like a victim for several years now. People are always against anger - I'm not. It's very useful when you decide to stop being afraid of the world around you. Yes we need to learn how...

    Maybe if we all stopped trying to be the victim,

    we might be able to better our lives on our own.

    The Crow's Wisdom...

    "Victims... Aren't we All?" Not me, Eric Draven, not me. A victim is so downtrodden, lost and helpless that after a time I think they get a High from the support. They can't "come down", so they keep creating their own traumas. Dont victimise yourself, step...

    My Choice

    There were times I got involved in things that I became victims of my own decisions. I became “hostage” of situations without realizing where I got into. I have imprisoned myself in small meannesses and let people invade my privacy. I forgot I was a free person, owner...

    No Victim

     I was blind because of you, I couldn’t see the harm you do. Now my will and strength are new, their healing powers get me through.  I never found the strength before, to deal with pain and not ignore. You brainwashed me into a robot, censored every thought I got...

    How Can I Stop Always Being The Victim?

    I don't want to always be the victim. But I always am. I am a person who is not very quiet. I have always spoken out loudly when I feel my rights or the rights of my immediate family are not being given a fair shake. I am articulate and often write letters to companies and to...

    Yes. This needs to be addressed immediately.

    It's true that I am a youngish woman. However, I am not a youngish American woman. It has occurred to myself and others that the U.S. has, for a number of reasons, adopted a pathology of victim hood. This is a shame. For many generations the world has looked to your...

    Life wasn't the easiest

    for me. I was physically abused by my father growing up, and later rejected by both of my parents. Then I tried to kill myself. And after all that I can still keep an honest smile. In truth there are people that had things easier than me, and there are people who had things...

    Just Because I Get Depressed

         I am human.  Every human gets depressed - some more than others.  There are treatments available to me if I am unable to recover from depression on my own.  I do not let my illnesses define me.  I do not demand sympathy from others because I get depressed.

    I Am Not A Victim, I Am A Student Of Life

    Being a victim takes away our personal power and experiences. Why is it that if you try something, and it doesn't work you become a victim? Isn't it more appropriate to say I am a survivor - or I am a seasoned explorer? I for one will never stop exploring life because I might get...
