Not Just Surviving, But Thriving

Some people say they are survivors of abuse. However, they are still depressed, still obviously affected from the horrific events of the past. Surviving, in some sense, is simply living through bad circumstances. But we don't want to simply survive abuse. We want to thrive in the face of it, coming out empowered rather than coming out dejected and oppressed.

Let's continue on the path of healing until we regain all the power over our lives, not merely living through bad times, but turning them into a defining point for our character to be better and the purpose of our lives more clearly laid out before us.
