It’s something I have to remind myself to do, constantly. Sometimes, I don’t even realize I’m allowing someone to control the situation until I’m in the middle of it. And that’s okay. It happens. I think the first part of getting over it, is accepting it does happen. As long as you remember, you write your story. You are the author of your life; how do you want that life to be?
It’s not always easy to take back that pen, but the choice is there.
