Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.
Harvey Fierstein actor and playwright
This is such a powerful statement! Many times our inner child is traumatized because of being bullied. Our inner child is then silenced out of fear. So many times in our lives we allow others to bully us into keeping quiet and not speaking out about what we need. We walk on egg shells around these people because they've made us feel that our needs aren't valid. We allow others to make us victims! We can choose NOT to be victims though. That doesn't mean that those experiences never happened, it means that we look at those experiences from a different perspective. Are those experiences blessings or curses? You decide. In the end, YOU choose how you want to define yourself. Do you want to define yourself as a victim or do you want to define yourself as that powerful amazing person whose feelings are valid and deserve to be heard? Remember, YOU have the power to choose. You are the creator of your life so choose wisely.
