Being a victim of life (Victim Mentality) refers to the mind set that one is born ill-starred and that one is doomed to be a chronic loser, a dependent, and a passive person. One believes that the circumstances, the gods above and below, the whole world, and  even nature are at odds with him.

The victim mentality is a tough cycle to break – but then again so is any cycle whether it is positive or negative (it is just that most people do not seek to break a positive cycle). As far as overcoming the victim of life feeling, one would need to realize that a situation by itself is never important. What’s important is one’s thoughts and reactions to a situation.

Have you ever heard about the phrase, Like Thoughts attract each other?
