Have you ever been told you're a survivor?

And took insult to it? I rather be a fighter than a survivor, or a winner instead of nice. What do you guys think?

I think this website is mostly populated by survivors.


Nobody has said it, but I know I am a survivor after I tried to commit suicide with a razor blade. This was long time ago and I am still here writing and posting. All survivors … thumbs up :smiley:

It’s not an either/or type of thing. Why not be a fighter and a survivor, a winner and nice?


I am not a fighter, but a survivor. After my suicide attempt years ago I have gained some additional respect toward the life, the life is most important, I would say I am a nice person, but not a winner at least in the traditional sense in which a person’s value is measured by financial states.

A lot of people use that as the measure of success, but I think there are better ways - like who you influenced and how you influenced them, who you helped, and how you benefited humanity.


I’m surviving myself constantly.


My dad told me that I’m a fighter and a survivor. I was told both in the same sentence by him.

Part of some fights is just surviving. I can confirm that to be true. Sometimes just making it is the victory.

Not all fights are fair, by the way.


Nah I’ve been told that im on my way out on more than a few occasions.

I’m more than a survivor I’m also a SOLDIER.


Don’t like being a survivor. It means something went wrong.

Don’t want to be a fighter either. I hate fights, they bore me and kind of just suck.

I don’t want to be strong either. Just means you are suffering.

I’ve actually been told that i shouldn’t give up. But this is only after fifteen years of straight ■■■■■■■ ■■■■■■■■. They still say it though. “Don’t give up!” Ha! How in the ■■■■ did i give up exactly? Fifteen years not good enough for you?!
