    Leaving the Victim Mentality

    in Self Help

    Many of us are caught up in the victim mentality. This could be due to a traumatic childhood or things that occured to us as adults that we had no control of. We were in fact victims to at least something at one point in our lives, but some have been victim to many odds against them. As we grow older, when we have not healed from a lot of these things, we can remain in a victim mentality. We may now be adults or even older in general (for those underage listening), but are still responding to situations as if we have no power or no part to play in where we find ourselves even when we are not a victim. 


    I have remained in the victim mentality for years. I am still growing from it, but I would like to share how it has affected others and myself with my past decisions. Also, to share my growth in everything.


    I just hope that this show will encourage others and even myself to slowly move out of the victim mentality. Yes, sometimes bad things happen to us and we are victims. We do live in a fallen world and God allows things for various reasons. However, we should not remain in a state of helplessness when God is glady willing to help us overcome and grow from our current state.


    Romans 12:21 "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good."


    Philippians 3:13,14 "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."

    Game Over - The Story Behind A Sex Trafficking Victim - Leah Rogers

    in Motivation

    Leah grew up very poor with her brother & sister. Leah would watch her mother endure physical and substance abuse daily. 


     Leah's mother discovered she was being raped by the neighbor's husband and sent Leah to Arizona to meet her father for the first time.  She just didn't seem to fit into her father's new family he had already established with another woman.  She was awarded to the state after her father called the police for pulling a knife out on him after he grabbed her violently.


    Leah began stripping to maintain a livable lifestyle in Arizona for her three children. It was there that she'd met an amazing guy.  


    They started dating and it wasn't until he had her isolated during a trip to California that he identified he was a pimp.  A violent one!  


     She made a vow to God pleading for her life as a john was raping her at gunpoint, she cried out, "God if you can just get me out of this, I promise I won't go back into this lifestyle".


     And boy he sure got her out of there. He sent her right to jail. It was then that she began walking into her destiny, by using her story to help other women from falling into the same trap she did.  Leah thought she'd never see freedom or have a normal life.  But God had other plans.


      Leah has now written a book called, Game Over:  The Story Behind a Sex Trafficking Victim, being released May 13th, 2015.

    Why Playing The Victim Is Counterproductive To Progress?

    in Entertainment

    There are many people that love to play the victim. They blame everyone else for their problems,failures and shortcomings. When your in a state of a victim you can't move on in your life to do something worthwhile. There are those in the black community that feel racism and white supremacy cripple us. Even though it exist there is no excuse to play the victim. Many former slaves and those that went through Jim Crow south rose above it to make their mark in history. No matter what we are responsible for ourselves at the end of the day. Will you focus on progress or wanting someone to feel sorry for you? The choice is yours.
