Is There A Hidden Purpose To Victimhood?

Monday, February 1st, 2010

An attitude has swept across practically every person in every country on the globe over the course of the past few decades. This is the attitude of victimhood. Why has it become so popular for people to feel like they are victims and what purpose can this serve?

The Lack of Responsibility

Victims feel they can shirk responsibilities because those fall on the shoulders of the victimizers. Victims feel like they have no control over their own lives. Have a drug problem? It’s your parents’ faults. Uneducated? It’s not your fault. You had to take care of your kid. Single parent? That’s the fault of that no good boyfriend that hit the road as soon as you gave birth.

The Conscious Path of Oneness Within the Persona

Many believe transformation comes from within. Change your thoughts, the saying goes, and you change your world. Some say it’s the other way around – that if we change our behaviors, the mind will follow.

At a quantum level there’s actually no difference. Our inner lives and outer worlds are one and the same.

As we undertake the seemingly arduous task of transforming ourselves, the illusion that our inner and outer lives are separate and irreconcilable can be dispiriting. When we focus on one area – be it the outer or the inner – we may feel the other becomes intractable and unyielding, resisting our efforts every step of the way.
