“Instead of seeing your past as it had wounded you, realize that it made you strong. Your battle scars are proof that no matter how hard life had become that you overcame it. You are a much stronger person today than you were yesterday. Use your past as a way to show people how to have courage for themselves. You are now a role model. You are not a victim.
We were not meant to go through all these challenges just to give up today. You are who you are; and you are as strong as you can be because of what happened to you in your past. The trials and tribulations could have broken you but they did not.
Instead your challenges created a much stronger person in you; and now you are the Wounded Warrior.”
