There is one primary identifying criteria that truly defines victimhood; it’s the one thing that all roles on the triangle share in common.
It is this.
When we live in Victimhood we see the external world as the cause of everything that has happened, will happen and is happening to us. We see ourselves as the recipients of, rather than originators of, our reality. That single factor alone keeps us seeing the world through the eyes of Victim. A Victim way of thinking sets us up to feel at the mercy of the world at large – Victimhood sets us adrift in a world of random acts of insanity, any one of which can annihilate us at any moment.
No wonder we can’t sit in stillness!
