We all have our reasons to be and feel like a Victim. We have all been through situations that seem unfair and have had a negative effect on our lives. We all have had regrets and wished we could go back in time and change things. I am right there with you. I have had my fair share of feeling like a victim in my life. When I was in college, I decided that feeling like a victim and acting like a victim no longer served me. I wanted to prosper and to become a victor. I no longer wanted the negative situations (I call these “Negative Nasties”) in my life to control me, my thoughts, actions, and words. I took charge of my life. Are you ready to do the same?
I began writing this blog three years ago so that I could help people look at life differently. I write so that I can help people shift their mindset and be the best they can be. It is so very easy to get caught up in “Our Story”. This is the story we tell others repeatedly. This is the story of a hurtful past that we can’t let go of. This is the story we relive daily in our minds and in the words we speak. Well, guess what? We have the power and the choice to rewrite our story. We can take that story and instead of being the victim, we can be the victor! We get to glean the lessons from this story; we get to put our own music to this story. We get to come out of this story with new character traits and an appreciation for the people who played a role in this story. Doesn’t that feel empowering to you?
Following is a poem that I read often.
It describes the way I try to live my life.
It is so easy to play the victim and to wallow in those feelings
Is that really and truly how you want to live your life?
I mentioned above that in college I decided to live like a victor. I want you to know that it didn’t happen magically overnight. It took years of hard work and counseling. But my life was important enough to me to dig out of that victim role I was playing. Through this work I learned so many great techniques and exercises to help me along my healing journey. I write my blog posts and record my “Mindset Minutes” so that I can help you along your healing journey. A couple of years ago, I created an eBook that is an interactive workbook. I have received so much wonderful feedback that I want to share this with you as well. If you or someone you know wants to get out of that victim role, I encourage you to download this eBook and work through your “Negative Nasties”.
