I am no longer a child, and I must learn to
No person may make me do what I do not wish
No person can make me feel ashamed without
No one can alter how I feel on the inside.
I can rationalize and comprehend that people
who care for me will not try to control or change me.
I do not have to be in the company of anyone
I don't choose to be.
I will not let others steal my joy.
I will not let others live 'rent-free' in my head.
I will change my circumstance if necessary. I am
not set in stone with any situation. I can master
my own destiny and outlook.
I am capable and strong and have resources now.
I am not a victim to conflict and chaos, despite
how I might react to it initially.
I will be calm, cool, and relaxed before making rash
decisions which will hurt only me.
I am not reliant on an outside source for salvation.
I am strong and capable on my own.
