How to Find Joy and Power After Being a Victim

By not taking risks, I stayed comfortable. By being comfortable, I was protected. By being protected, I stayed safe. By staying safe, I didn’t get hurt.

To actually face the light and be responsible for my life was a scary thought.

Facing the fear took away it’s hold on me. I had power over things that I didn’t know I had. I could take responsibility. I could choose to lean in and not be so afraid of being a victim.

We can choose into feeling different, we can choose to be fearless, we can choose our own personal experience of the outward experience.

Joy comes from choosing into it.

We choose our reality.

Choose into joy, choose into healing, choose into power.
