Who we become

Who we become

“Our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.” ~Barbara Geraci

While it can be helpful to be aware of how our past may have influenced us, we do ourselves a disservice when we allow those circumstances to limit us. We alone are responsible for the people we become, and it is up to us to choose who that will be. Change is always possible.

“Resilience is knowing that you are the only one who has the power and the responsibility to pick yourself up.” ~Mary Holloway

Resilience comes once we stop waiting for someone else to save us. It doesn’t mean we can’t accept help (we can and should!), but it does mean that we stay in charge of the process. Only then can we choose how we will rebound and who we will become in the process.
