“Everything happens for a reason”
cliche I know…
Everyone has a story. A story that made them who they are today. So what role do you play in that story?
The victim or the hero?
For so long I have played he victim. I’m the one who was struggling. I was the one that needed help. I was the one who needed to be taken care of.
i was convinced I didn’t have room for anyone else in my life. I pushed everyone away because I was too scared I would drag them down with me. I saw how much my disease hurt the people I love. I saw the pain in my parents eyes because there was nothing they could do to help me. I thought I was doing everyone else a favor by keeping them at a distance.
Let me tell you something… I was wrong.
Every single day I learn more and more that I can’t do it alone. I have dreams… BIG ones. and I know I wouldn’t be half as strong as I am today if it weren’t for the people that I keep by my side.
Today I’m done playing the victim. I’m ready to take what I learned and share it with the world. If I can help, support, or inspire just one person with my story.. I have succeeded.
It’s my turn to be the hero.
