Do you blame others for what goes wrong in your life? Is it always someone else's fault? Do you look to the future and can only see bad things ahead for you? Do you identify with those who have a complaint or talk about how someone is always doing them wrong? If you do, you may have a "Victim Mentality." It's an attitude that sees everything as negative and never takes responsibility for anything. This attitude is a way of thinking that destroys all hope and any thought of becoming better or wiser in life. It defeats you even before the fight begins. You easily quit things and soon become angry at life. There is hope and an answer for overcoming it. It usually begins with forgiving something or someone who has abused you or has caused you to be afraid. Next, you forgive yourself, if for nothing else; maybe you were afraid and put up with it. Maybe you feel guilty and feel like you deserved it (which you don't). There is a time when we have to forgive ourselves for doing, or not doing, something we regretted. Once this is done, you are on your way to changing your life and moving forward. You have to start somewhere and sometime. This is a great day to begin.
Just a thought, God bless.
