don't say victim.
"so what if it hurts me? so what if i break down? so what if this world throws me off the edge and my feet run out of ground?"
i am a survivor. we all are in our own different ways. we battle heartache, overcome indifference, break through stereotypes, and so much more. in the eighteen, almost nineteen years of my life, i have learned to become a fighter. i fight to stay grounded, i fight for my loved ones, i fight against labels, i fight for what i believe in, i fight for acceptance.
but you fight and you fight and you fight, and through all that struggling you can't always win. there are times when you're just so tired... and it just seems that at those moments of weakness, life throws you some cheap shots and a couple low blows. "i just can't win," you think to yourself. but then you slowly regain strength and the one thing you have to do is keep fighting.
life can get freaking hard. but you know what? i think i've done an alright job making it through this far. i must be doing something right.
