er I dunno. Try asking the moderators if you can change the title or perhaps create another thread and then have the mods merge the threads?
give yourself some credit!!! Being born and then growing up in a dysfunctional family IS something uncontrollable. None of us had a say in who our parents are! So, there, I stand by my definition of 'survivor' as someone who has 'super'+'vivere' any tragedy. True, people who've survived 'BIG things' like wars and cancer are totally deserving of our admiration. But, courage is also about the little choices in life, the little 'tragedies' that one overcomes, living well (whatever your definition of that might be) against all odds.
