Don’t celebrate the victim

Can you tell the difference between those who want to improve versus those who want others to see how brave their struggle is?

When you wear your heart on your sleeve, it weakens you because your struggle grows to define you.

If you’re not careful, the sympathy you get from going through a struggle can easily fulfil your need for validation or recognition by others.

Before you know it, that will become key in your effort to feel significant.

That’s how our struggles weaken us, because when we stop paying attention, it grows to define how the world sees us.

We then become willing victims and see no need to grow beyond that struggle.
