I Choose To Survive

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4 People

    I am not the abuse I suffered I am not what was

    done to me I am not my trauma I am the strength that I found to survive The courage that helped me escape The invisible power that hid and protected the tiny spark of my light. I ignite that little light With the fire that is inside of me And with it I will burn All their lies...

    By understanding it wasn't your fault You shed

    light on a secret that is dark And for those in your life that can't handle it Talk anyway...Tell it anyway... Not so much for somebody to believe you but for you to believe in yourself!

    I now believe that there is far more potential

    in life than my anger and hatred are permitting me to see. I feel the hate and negativity consuming me and leaving nothing to keep or to share...Love is the only way...I adopt it now, for my own way. Although love is such consuming. It still permits room for rest and peace...
