The moment I realized how much and often I give myself away, how often I compromise my values by staying quiet and complacent, witness how people could take credit for my merits, and how apologetic I became for even existing, I broke up with that version of me and reinvented myself.

 

When people wanted to control and manipulative me, they thought they could  strip me of something I love, I realized it was never mine to begin with and all I had to do was let them relieve me of the burden of their abuse that weighed me down. It wasn't until it was lifted that I became able to reclaim my self worth and take back my pride with a whole new perspective on who I want to be and what I want to accomplish as a human being.
