Victim Mentality
We all no doubt go through our fair share of struggles in the form of misfortune, illness, disaster or simply bad luck. Whether these struggles are of our own making or involve other people, makes little difference, because how we deal with these struggles purely depends on how we make sense of them. Interpret them in a helpful way, and your struggles can become incredible opportunities for change and transformation. However, interpret them in an unhelpful way and we can often fall into the self-pity trap where we play our very own victim card riddled with pitiful excuses and self-loathing.
