In yesterday’s post, I promised to reveal how you can tell if someone – including you – is a professional victim. The fastest tip off is the language they use.
People who are professional victims delight in using expressions like these:
I’m always a day late and a dollar short.
If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all.
All the good guys are married or gay. (Unless you’re gay. Then it’s, “all the good guys are married or straight.”)
Why am I always the last one to know?
I’m always the last hired, and the first fired.
They like to think they’re just being clever and self-depreciating when they say things like this. But in truth, they’re wallowing in victim-hood, and avoiding taking responsibility for their own life.
So, what do you think? Please share your thoughts below.
Have an abundant weekend. I’ll check in on the other side...
