There are many reason why many of us aren’t living the life we desire. However, for many of us, our mindset has trapped us without our slightest attempt to change it. We have embraced and nourished negative thoughts for years, based upon experiences, the words of others, and more importantly, our own words. We’ve channeled those thoughts and allowed them to come from our very lips and then wonder in amazement at the manifestation in our lives as if our words have no power and someone else is to blame. Oh, I’m speaking from experience.
If truth be told and exposed, at the very root of our “thought life” is the concept that we are the victim. We have embraced the “victim mentality” to the point that it overshadows all of our hopes and dreams. It chokes the life out of our relationships and destroys all possibility of success. Aren’t you tired of being the victim?
You may have been abandoned at birth [like I was], hurt, mistreated, and abused. Maybe your parents didn’t show you the love that you were worthy of. Yes, your husband did cheat. Or a complete stranger violated you and did unspeakable things to you against your will. You could have lost loved ones to murder or disease, and had to lower your own child’s lifeless body into the ground. But exactly, how long do you continue the personal torment? How long should you carry the shame, blame, guilt, and pain? When do you finally admit to yourself that you have “embraced” that tragedy and decided to allow it to drape over your entire life, like a sofa cover? How long can you truly blame others for the way your life turned out?
Oh, yes, we can hold them accountable for their behavior, but can you blame others for your life results? Exactly when will you release the mentality, of someone, always being victimized by others and accept “ownership” and “creative responsibility” for your own life? How will you ever gain the victory unless you part ways with the victim?
It’s time to truly understand and take “creative responsibility” for the life you’ve been living. Yes, you experienced what no other person should have endured. Despite all that you may have suffered, a mind stuck in the role of victimization is a life sentence that you’ve bestowed upon yourself. No one holds the keys to your prison, except you! You’ve served your time. The prison you’ve created was built with the fabric of your thoughts. It’s time for you to tear down the walls of captivity in your mind and be free. Start by saying, “I AM free. I AM no longer the victim. The victim mentality no longer lives within me.”
