Being a refugee is not being a victim. As a refugee, you can empower yourself by believing your power, inner gentle strength and uniting with positive attitude organisations and people. You can find your way out from undesired circumstances. The road for empowerment is from accepting the situation you are in, not in a victimised way but in a clear headed, focus minded, looking for solutions and willing to carry on with always positive attitude to reach the destination.
Even though being a refugee is a catastrophic life changing/transforming state/experience, you have to have right attitude to get over it and put your life into its rail.
Refugees are generally victimised. The power to change anything comes within and let no fear and victimisation enter there. Believe you can make a difference in your life. First have a clear look at where you are and then starting moving towards where you want to be without any hesitation .
Remember, however unique you may think you are, there is always someone who has had the same "dream" before, and who will left signs behind that will make the journey less arduous. Don't argue or complain , just be calm and open your mind and heart. It is time to think clear and believe that you can do. Do not let any doubts to enter your existence. Don't compare anything , prices, standards of hygiene, quality of life, means of transport, nothing. You are not travelling in order to prove you had a better life, you are in the unknown territories of all kinds.
Even if you don't speak the language, don't be afraid. You must learn to bear certain paths and sorrows, because they will make you a better person. Be a warrior of light, transform your intention into gesture, need fear nothing else. Don't allow yourself to be paralysed by fear. Even you fail, remember, there will have other opportunities because you did not give in to cowardice.
No one will be there taking care of you. But only in this way can you truly leave your own country behind. By accepting this, you will accept and embrace your true power which comes as a form of gentle strength. You will be walking alone, but it was only by respecting your own rhythm that you will managed to complete the journey.
"Moses-Charlton Heston - lifts up his rod, the waters part, and the children of Israel cross over" . It is different in the Bible. There, God says to Moses: "Speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward." And only afterwards does he tell Moses to lift up his rod, and then the Red Sea parts. It is only courage on the path itself that makes the path appear." (Paul Coelho, Like The Flowing River)
