In a way, you were right. I have been playing the victim. And though you said it with one too many scoops of condescension, I took it in and savored the sentiment. I have been playing the victim far too long. I have been giving my power away. And I no longer need to do that. For in the end, I am the sovereign ruler of my inner life. And I shall rule this kingdom with peace, gentleness, compassion, and creativity. Thank you, love. Thank you for showing me what I needed to see.
