Life hasn’t always been easy for me. I have faced various traumatic events, dealt with grief, struggled with disabilities, and endured hardships. However, I will not allow those things to control me or destroy me. I am an overcomer.
I want to move forward to remain strong. I want to use my negative experiences to make me resilient. If I can overcome my past experiences then I can conquer whatever the future holds for me.
Have I ever found myself dwelling on my pity pot, crying about my struggles, and winning about why these things happened to me? The answer is yes. I admit I find it cathartic to do so at times.
There is no shame in feeling defeated or feeling sorry for yourself. Those are natural human emotions.
The important thing is to get off the pity pot and continue moving forward. Don’t let your past destroy your future.
