How To Get Past a Destructive Thought Habit

How To Get Past a Destructive Thought Habit
I hope you've had a good weekend so far. 
Now, the topic for this Sunday is a very common issue. One that I used to get stuck in all too often. And that is to almost always feel sorry for yourself and to think that you're a victim when something goes wrong.
What to Do When You Get Stuck in Victim Thinking
In this article, I'd like to share the two most important steps that have helped me to move away from this destructive thought habit.
1. Recognize the benefits of the victim mentality.
The victim mentality can be pretty beneficial in the short term and for instant gratification. A few benefits are:
  • Attention and validation. You can always get good feelings from other people as they are concerned about you and try to help you out. Yet it may not last for that long as people get tired of it.
  • You don't have to take risks. When you feel like a victim you tend to not take action. And so you don't have to risk for instance rejection or failure.
  • Don't have to take the sometimes heavy responsibility. Taking responsibility for your own life can be hard work, you have to make difficult decisions and it is just tough from time to time. In the short term it can feel
    like the easier choice to not take personal responsibility.
In my experience, by just being aware of the benefits I can derive from victim thinking it becomes easier to say no to that whenever such thoughts start to creep up and to choose to take a different path.
 You cannot stand in gratitude if you are stuck in victimhood.

2. Ask yourself: what will the long-term consequences of this be?
The benefits above can be quite addictive. But what will the long-termconsequences of getting stuck in victim thinking be?
  • How will it hold you back from doing the things you deep down dream
    about in life?
  • How will it affect your most important relationships?
  • How does it affect your relationship with yourself?
Be honest with yourself and get motivation to change by seeing how destructively this will affect your life over the next 12 months and over the next 3 or 5 years.
The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice that which we are for what we could become.
