We all have insecurities and self-pity sob stories. I’m not likeable. I’m not good-looking. I’m broke or broken. I’ve made a big mistake in the past or my parents made it for me. These victim stories can be narratives that we repeat to ourselves as an excuse to wallow or withdraw. It’s true that life is not fair, but in one thing it does not discriminate: hardship and heartache. This is the harsh reality of the human condition. But you do have a choice. Choose to learn from your past, work on your areas of weakness, and live an empowering victory rather than a victim story. The next chapter is always yours to write.
“The biggest threat to your future is the past you won’t let go.”
