Stop Playing The Victim Role

Recognize It

Recognizing how these thoughts imminent as playing the victim will teach self-awareness.  This becomes an essential factor for getting out of of self-pity.  A victim role will only keep you sick.  Feeling sorry for yourself  won’t help either. All negative thinking is good for is negative outcomes and depression.

Pull Yourself Out of It

A solution would be to reshape thought patterns.  The power of positive thinking isn’t just a myth!  When all thoughts are demeaning and negative, a lower and pitiful mood is set in the individual.  This makes it likely for the individual to attract negative people and situations as a result.

Remember that playing the victim isn’t the answer.  No one individual is so innately unique that bad events only occur to them.  Playing the victim role goes hand in hand with all or nothing thinking, which is a common theme in the disease of addiction.  Breaking this pattern of thinking can help an addict during their recovery process whereas continuing to think these types of thoughts can keep an individual sick.
