I am not what happened to me in the past. I am not what that person said I was. I am not who I used to be. These things may have been relevant once upon a time, they may have applied before, but they no longer get to define me.
I get to define me.
I am a constant evolution, a perceiving, deciding, and acting point of consciousness. I change, I grow, I become.
I choose who and how I want to be.
