How to Avoid The Trap of Victim Culture & Build Resilience
There's a beautiful balance that can be found between being honest and true about how you feel (being vulnerable) and building resilience. But that's not necessarily what's being emphasized at the moment. In fact, the focus, more and more, is on elevating victimhood.
Though we are in a transformative time, there's a danger of going too far into victimhood and we need to be mindful as we progress forward. Because identifying with your victim story ultimately leads you to live from the outside in. It's essentially a surrendering of power. Giving your energy away to others to manage as they see fit. Only they're not the ones that can create change for you.
Living this way sucks the life out of you. When you get caught in the victim trap you are 100% reliant on other people and their perspectives. It's hard to feel grounded or safe. It feels like you are under attack. You lose touch with yourself and with your inner guidance system.
In this episode, I also discuss the victim-aggressor relationship and how you can be both as they are two sides of the same coin.
It's a deep, thought-provoking conversation. How would your life change if you could transform your victim story into a victor story?
