Narcissists live in their own emotional world — if they cannot be your hero, they may claim to be your victim.
There are solutions and steps we can take to change our circumstances and alleviate pain, but with a hopeless outlook and “learned helplessness,” we don’t seek or accept help and can sink into depression.
The truth about victimhood cannot only heal you, it can set you free! Be warned, if you’re not ready to release the idea of victimhood, the following perspective could invoke a strong emotional reaction.
The self-victimizer will accept insufferable abusive treatment from their partners and will continue their toxic relationship.
A lot of us don’t even realize all the ways we’re creating our own misery.
People who struggle with the victim mentality are convinced that life is not only beyond their control, but is out to deliberately hurt them.
“Pain is no one’s fault.”
