Deep thought provoking questions on victim mentality points a revealing finger at the victim within. The inner-victim doesn't like to be pointed at however. It would rather continue operating behind the scenes. Asking ourselves powerful questions helps bring the victim within to light.
An inner-victim lives within you - it lives and hides within the recesses of the mind. Undetected and unchecked, it will sabotage your efforts at personal growth and positive life change. The victim within will try to dissuade us from the adventurous journey of stepping out-of-the-mind.
The victim within is threatened by change - no matter how positive the change may be. It will fight for homeostasis, for inertia. It will put all it's efforts into defending the status quo. The victim within regards us as weaker, and less capable, than we actually are.
Stepping out-of-the-mind is a job for the warrior, not the victim, within. You cannot climb altitudes while carrying the weight of the world on your back. Rest assured that the victim within will be of little use to you where you're headed. Might as well start today with leaving it behind.
