We’ve all been victimized and suffered the pain of it. There comes a point at which we must move on. Victimhood does not excuse living the rest of our life in a position of weakness.
The Victim’s lament is “Poor me!” The Victim feels oppressed, helpless, hopeless,powerless, ashamed, and seems unable to make decisions, solve problems, take pleasure in life, or achieve insight.
Colin C. Tipping in his book, Radical Forgiveness: Making Room for the Miracle writes,
“Victim Consciousness is defined as the conviction that someone else has done something bad to you, and as a direct result, they are responsible for the lack of peace and happiness in your life.”
Is this you?
Is it time to move on?
Then why don’t you?
