I am a struggling survivor who at times still feels like a "victim".
Overcoming that "victim" identity is a good first goal. Most of us have been there. Ther boy you were was the victim. The man you are now is a SURVIVOR!
Despite the damage done to you, you have made it to this point of having the courage to deal with it all. Well done! Now go for it.
Can't be bothered with sorrow
And I can't be bothered with hate, no, no
I'm using up the time but feeling fine every day
That's why I'm telling you
I just want to celebrate another day of livin'Rare Earth
