Thanks For Making Me A Fighter

This just came on my playlist and I remember this song being so relevant to me when I was younger. The words still resonate with me so much today that I thought I’d share them with you, but I would also personally like to thank all those who didn’t believe in me. Thank you to those who hurt me for personal gain, who used me, who only saw what they could get from me and to those who lied to me, you made me find the incredible strength within me. To those who mistook my fragility, my sweetness, my shyness and my open heart for weakness, you have no idea what you unleashed in your attempts to put me down, to put me in my place.

After all that you put me through,
You think I’d despise you,
But in the end I wanna thank you,
‘Cause you’ve made me that much stronger

Well I thought I knew you, thinkin’ that you were true
Guess I, I couldn’t trust called your bluff time is up
‘Cause I’ve had enough
You were there by my side, always down for the ride
But your joy ride just came down in flames ’cause your greed sold me out in shame

After all of the stealing and cheating you probably think that I hold resentment for you
But uh uh, oh no, you’re wrong
‘Cause if it wasn’t for all that you tried to do, I wouldn’t know
Just how capable I am to pull through
So I wanna say thank you
‘Cause it

Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

Never saw it coming, all of your backstabbing
Just so you could cash in on a good thing before I’d realize your game
I heard you’re going round playing the victim now
But don’t even begin feeling I’m the one to blame
‘Cause you dug your own grave
After all of the fights and the lies ’cause you’re wanting to haunt me
But that won’t work anymore, no more,
It’s over
‘Cause if it wasn’t for all of your torture
I wouldn’t know how to be this way now and never back down
So I wanna say thank you
‘Cause it


How could this man I thought I knew
Turn out to be unjust so cruel
Could only see the good in you
Pretend not to see the truth
You tried to hide your lies, disguise yourself
Through living in denial
But in the end you’ll see

I am a fighter and I
I ain’t gonna stop
There is no turning back
I’ve had enough


You thought I would forget
But I remembered
‘Cause I remembered
I remembered
You thought I would forget
I remembered
‘Cause I remembered
I remembered

  1. Dani, I have had major anxiety (still do but it doesn’t matter as much now). And I have have other things I don’t tell people. I always tried to put on the happy face, while inside being miserable. For most of my life I hid my issues and was very embarrassed about it.

    Through certain teachings, I am now able to see all my stuff as a blessing.

    I like how you see things that happen to you as a positive. Reminds of the book ‘Radical Forgivenss.’
