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."
