It’s easy to feel like a victim in challenging situations and circumstances in our life. We want to understand our negative thoughts, feelings and experiences, so we place blame on other people, objects, or events.
We look outward to try to make sense of what’s going on inside of us. We do this all the time. Why? It’s our way of coping, and feeling more in control of uncontrollable situations. The problem with this approach. However, is it takes away our personal responsibility and freedom of choice. In our attempt to feel more in control (by faulting others for our experience) we actually strip ourselves of our own power.
That power is lost the moment we become dependent on other people or things to make us feel a certain way. Whether that feeling is positive or negative.
