“I am not a product of my circumstances, I am a product of my decisions.” -Bane
You might have been abused, but you choose whether or not you are a victim.
You were broken, but you determine whether that crack allows light to shine out or poison to spew forth.
All people experience trauma. Do you close down from PTSD, or experience Post Traumatic Growth and chose to use the pain as fuel to become better?
Genetics is powerful, but the epigenetic choices we make to activate this predisposition or not is even more so.
It is not the cards you are dealt, it is your decisions and how you play your hand that determines if you win the game of life or not.
Make your choice.
