Do you too feel powerless?

This happens to me whenever I blame someone else’s behavior or something else I don’t have control over for not being who or where I’d like to be.

It’s victim mentality and my brain loooves to go there when challenges are high.

It’s sneaky. You might face it too and not recognize it. You can be strong, capable & driven, never identify as a victim, and be in victim mentality.

It shows up when we complain, make excuses, feel sorry for ourselves, act defensive. When we think we’re the target of someone’s negative intentions (though it’s not because you’re paranoid that nobody hates you 😊). Even when we try to control other people’s behavior, or avoid taking risks.

Victim mentality comes from believing we are not enough. Be on to yourself!

Accept your responsibility, and let go of the villain. It doesn’t mean being a doormat. It just means to let your “villain” do their thing and work around it to do yours.

KNOW in your bones that you are enough just as you are. Figure out how this is a perfect opportunity to show how resourceful and resilient you can be.

And reclaim the power you always have, in any situation.
