So I’ve been suggesting in the last couple posts that perhaps you’re still holding on to victim-hold. And more than a few of you have acknowledged that in the comments. But what about the rest of you? Am I just projecting my victim-hood issues on you? Or are you still mired in victim consciousness? Let’s find out….
Do you ever talk about any things that happened to you in childhood that hurt you? By this I mean abuse you endured, things that were withheld from you, absence of love or affection, etc. If you are talking about them with anyone except a professional therapist, then you are wallowing in victim-hood.
When you go out on a new date, do you tell war stories about your last ex? Or the ones before that? If so, you’re trying to be a victim.
When someone asks how you are, do you start listing your headache, back pain, or other aches and pains? Total victim-hood.
Do you believe that your financial challenges are the result of the economy, government programs, bad partners, your boss, or any other outside factors? If so, you are seeking to be victimized.
Do you still talk about money you lost in business deals or investments in the past? Of course the only reason for this is to feel victimized.
Now do you think I’m being unreasonable, and that some of the things I said above don’t really apply to you because you have extenuating circumstances? Congratulations, you’re a Master Level victim!
Give this some real thought. Then if you’re still not convinced, you can argue with me below...
