No matter what the situation, today if I believe down deep that I am a helpless victim then I am in dangerous emotional territory. Although we all feel victimized at times (and in reality there is great pain out there caused by other’s actions) it is a powerful emotional position to shun “victim-hood” and to take 100% accountability for how I feel and what I will choose to do. I have watched many clients transform their lives and gain great personal power when they give up feeling like a victim and instead live in a place of accountability and choice and gratitude. It is hard to do at times, but the rewards are huge.
