Hello. Welcome to In Which We Start Anew and our quarter-annual tough love buttkick.
So, whatever you're going through, it's hard. It's hard and it's been hard for a long time. You've been manipulated and taken advantage of. You've put up with the way you've been treated. You've turned the other cheek. You've cried and complained and confided in those around you who would listen. You've been the victim. You've been the victim hardcore and wrung every bit of self-pity you could out of it.
Today, we put off being the victim. We put off how we were taken advantage of and manipulated. Today, we set aside the hurt we felt, and the chinks in our armor.
Today, we stand up. We accept that what we've just been through is hard, but we claim that we are bigger than our wounds. We are stronger than what has been done to us. We are more than conquerors. We are survivors.
We cannot feel sorry for ourselves forever, friends. There comes a point where we have to put what happened behind us.
Today is that day.
