I am a woman. I am capable. I am strong. I am in control of myself. I am responsible. I am not a victim.

I can make it on my own if need be. But I choose instead to be dependent on others and let others be dependent on me. I choose relationships over independence. I am not a victim.

I make my own decisions, some good and some bad. I own the consequences of those decisions, both good and bad. I am not a victim.

I embrace my femininity. I am emotional. I am nurturing. I am soft. I am not a victim.

I live in a sinful world. I have been hurt. I have been abused. I have been mistreated. I have been tossed aside. But I am not a victim.

I problem solve. I learn. I plan. I overcome. I am not victim.

I am intentional. I have vision and dreams. I work hard. I am not a victim.

I have lost much. I have been disappointed. I have been in the lowest of lows. I am not a victim.

I have fought hard. I have climbed mountains. I have built my life. I am not a victim.

I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister. I am all that being a woman entails. But I am not a victim.
