He did this to me.”
“She said that about me.”
“I was being bullied because someone said something that I don’t agree with and I didn’t like it. They’re making me feel like they hate me.”
“He told me I’m fat and ugly and don’t deserve to have anything nice.”
“Everyone picks on me. No one understands what I’m going through. They don’t get it. I’m always being picked on.”
“He/she deserted me for someone else and now nothing’s going right. It’s not fair.”
“Whatever I do or say, someone always tells me I don’t know what I’m talking about and makes me feel bad about myself. They’re always picking on me.”
Do these statements sound familiar?
Does someone you know say such things all the time? Or do you find yourself saying them?
What do these statements all have in common?
They’re what you use to make yourself the victim in everything that goes wrong in your life. Because it’s easier to blame someone else for everything than looking at yourself and asking why all this seems to be happening.
Maybe you’re the type of person who just can’t be happy unless there’s something to complain about.
Maybe it’s easier to explain away all your unhappiness because it’s someone else’s fault.
But when you keep repeating the same reasons over and over in every unhappy situation there’s a problem.
It’s your victim mentality. Because it’s easier to blame someone else rather than look inside yourself and try to figure out why this same situation happens time after time.
Maybe you don’t know any other way to be. And maybe keeping that victim mentality in its strange way makes you happy. Because it’s easier to keep complaining than move out of your comfort zone.
There’s always an excuse. But what you don’t realize is, you’re the excuse, because you’re always playing the victim.
And if you don’t stop, you’ll never be the conqueror.
And isn’t it time for you to be a conqueror rather than a victim?
