It’s another solo bonus episode… this time talking about my observations and journey of shifting out of victim mode and into empowered, conscious creator mode. This is a touchy subject and not one I’m super comfortable sharing with the general public yet.
I admit that my nervous system isn’t ready for the potential fall-out of going public with these thoughts.
I was a victim of childhood physical abuse. I was a victim of brain-washing inside the cult of evangelical Christianity. I’ve been a victim of mental illness, chronic fatigue, and chronic pain. I was the victim of sexual assault.
For a long time, I felt so much validation when I could claim that I was a victim of this or that. My ego loved being the victim. Other people’s sympathy was a feast for my pain body. And, I was stuck.
My life changed dramatically when I chose to be the hero of my story instead of the victim in the story everyone would feel sorry for. I quit living my life from a place of “it’s not my fault” and shifted to a place of “what happened wasn’t my fault, but what I do with it is my responsibility”. It has been hard work, but I am free.
