“In a world that defines success by those who “win” as if every aspect of life were a competition, I will never be important.  I used to fight every battle in front of me, intent on winning, as if somehow that meant I had value.  I don’t anymore.  There are no winners or losers, there are only fragile people working with what they have.  So my walking away may make someone else feel like they have won.  It may make others feel I have surrendered because I was wrong, but it is just me knowing that I am not defined by any battle where the goal is to hurt someone else.  It is enough to know who I am and what I need to do.  I do not need to destroy other human beings to own that place.”  Aria E.
