Getting out of the victim place

Leave a comment

One place that we want to hide away from at all costs is the “Victim Place”.  What is that?  Well, that’s where you blame other people or circumstances for your life.  It’s true that there are some people who have had a “difficult life” or are going through a really hard time. 

When I think about this, it brings to mind the words of the Serenity Prayer:

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

The only power that we really have in our life is the power to choose how we react to situations that arise in our life.  What happens when the choice is to blame outside things for the quality of your life?  You give your power away.  You lend the power that you had to do something about the situation to that situation.  Then, what are you left with?  Weakness.  I don’t know about you but I have always wanted to be a strong person.  I don’t want to give my strength away.

Have you been wanting to make a healthy change but didn't know where to start? Well, you've found it. My mission for my counseling practice is to improve the health of those who never realized quite how important it was before. I want to show the path to those who might have wanted to find it,but got so lost with all the information out there that they didn't know where to look. You deserve to be healthy and happy - all it takes on your part is a decision to make it happen and to have a good support system in place.
