As a professional victim in the race of life, I have finally ran free of that mentality. I have found strength through weakness and love through hate. I am setting myself free and no longer setting up expectations so that I am disappointed and can be that victim again.
I am a strong and beautiful woman. I don't need to look in the mirror to say I'm beautiful. That outward appearance means little. What matters is how I feel in the inside and that will project outwards - if you don't like my appearance and walk away, I consider that a win for me.
I know I deserve better than some superficial, judgmental and critical person. I know some days will be hard and I will face challenges throughout, it's ok. I'm ready! I believe in me. I believe that I have found the person that's been waiting to be set free. Guess who that is? It's me!
