The Old "scapegoat" Copout

here is a scapegoat in every family. Unfortunately at times this was my role in the family. To be honest, I really didn't mind it because I was protecting my three younger sisters. I was stronger,, tougher than they were and so it was ok to take the blame all the time. Later in life when I realized I had continued to carry that role in my relationships, it was not cool and I became a victim. It has taken me a very long time, a lot of drugs, being in abusive relationships, going to jail and then alot of therapy to realize I had to change my belief system. I had to change my thinking, and this is not an easy thing to do. You really have to want to change. I personally am not a victim anymore and I have a voice. I like myself and am a good person and don't deserve to treated badly by anyone. Too bad it took me so long to find this out. I am alone and
sometimes I think I will die alone, but today it is all good and I am ok with it. I love life and cherish it. Life is too short to be miserable.
