Did some bad things happen to you? Did you have some promises broken? How did those things make you feel? How do those things make you feel right now? I understand that it hurts because I have been here before.
But is ok, you do not have to be a victim anymore.
I had a sense of entitlement when I was younger. As a teenager, I felt like the world owed me something. For example, I was mad at my parents for not being like other parents and I was upset at boyfriends for not loving me like a husband should . One could go on forever on what I thought the world should do to make me feel better. I would hold grudges for the craziest of things. I still feel upset when I experience unjust treatment, but that feeling does not last very long. As I grow in Christ, I see that this world and the humans in it are not perfect and we should stop expecting perfection.
Make the choice to no longer let circumstances get you down or beat you up. Do not continue to hold anger towards an imperfect person, you are imperfect too. This also goes to say, do not allow someone to mistreat you or abuse you either. You can forgive a person and move away from unhealthy relationships and environments without having resentment. It is completely ok.
Bible scripture John 16:33 (New Living Translation) reads “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on Earth, you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” In this scripture, Jesus is comforting us with the promise of victory from Him . Those rough times may seem unbearable to you but nothing is too much for the creator of all things. As believers in Christ, we stand on the assurance that Christ will keep and protect us.
I am not discrediting any of your hardships, I am just telling you that you possess something within you which is stronger than it! Having a victim mindset means that you think that a person or event has control over you and it does not. You are victorious through Jesus. Stop allowing hopelessness ,strife and pain to handicap your heart. The freedom of knowing you are bigger than the emotional, spiritual and physical bondage that being a victim creates will allow you to conquer the victim mindset.
You do not have to fight your storm alone when you give it to God. Today reflect on the areas where you are feeling victimized and allow God to make you victorious in those areas.
