WHAT ABOUT BEING A VICTIM?

The following excerpt is from the self help
psychology book, Be Your Own Therapist.


Why are you questioning me so? Didn't I suffer many traumas as a child at the hands of parents who drank, fought a lot, and failed to meet my emotional needs? Yes.


What about the disasters I have suffered as an adult because of others? Wasn't I a victim then or when I was a child? That depends upon what you believe. Ultimately you will be happier if you believe your higher self chose your parents and all those disastrous experiences as lessons this time around on Earth School.


The ultimate in self responsibility: Wherever I am unhappy, there is where I need to change myself. Most of us blame others.

Few in this culture (probably fewer than 10% of the population) would agree with the statement, "there are no victims." That statement initially seems harsh, uncaring and offensive. But belief in its validity will free the believer in many ways. Holding such a belief does require assuming a load, that of responsibility for one's contentment. Such a load is not a burden, but an adventure. To believe my higher self does know what I need and is giving it to me, however much my conscious self objects, is empowering.
