You don’t have to be a warrior. You did not choose this war. You don’t have to fight the way anyone else thinks you should fight. You don’t have to be “survivor”, “victim”, or “that girl”. The only thing you *have* to be is what you already are: ALIVE. You are not what happened to you, you are not what someone else chose to do. You are who you say you are. And you are the only one who gets to decide.
