"Being a survivor only requires one thing, a commitment to yourself. Make a commitment to yourself to make it. All of that love that you have given to others, the love they carelessly tossed aside, give that love to yourself. Seriously. Refuse to give up on yourself. Make a promise to never give up on yourself.
I am a survivor because I refuse to give up on myself. I am stubborn as well I suppose but I will not give anyone the satisfaction of breaking me. I am stronger than that. You are too.
Strength is in continuing to get up each day and trying. A strong person asks for help, breaks down, gets back up, learns coping skills, feels weak but keeps going. We are all survivors if we choose to be.
