I played victim for many years of my life in certain situations.

When I started my journey of self discovery, like truly started diving in and facing the mirror, I realized that only I am responsible for me. Not anyone else. It doesn’t matter how someone made me feel, did or didn’t do, said or didn’t say. How I react and respond is what matters and what will bring the ultimate peace. I’ve also realized that if I am unable to take responsibility for my actions, the same cycle of insanity will continue.

I have had many conversations about this particular topic lately with several people who are realizing they are no longer the victim of their circumstance(s). They are realizing they have more power than they gave themselves credit for. They are coming out of the dark and shining their light.

You see, we are ALL THE SAME. It’s called HUMAN. Perfection is not real. Humans are. We all have a story and we all have our shit to deal with. But we must be aware, take responsibility, take action & only then will we heal. We will use our stories for the highest good, and we’ll change the world. Are you with me?

Because nothing happens by accident, of course this video was shared with me and I felt led to pass it on and share my thoughts as well. Here are my top takeaways. I’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences! Share below or reach out anytime thesoulshinecollective@gmail.com

With awareness & practice, respond in kindness. Empathy. Love.

  1. Awareness – don’t take it personal.
  2. Avoid getting triggered.
  3. Respond to the other person’s needs with love & empathy.


  • What triggers me?
  • What am I afraid of? 
  • What do I need to heal?
