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.
Seems I've got to have a change of scene
Every night I have the strangest dreams
Imprisoned by the way it could have been
Left here on my own or so it seems
I've got to leave before I start to screamJoe Cocker
