Playing out the role of the victim in life makes you your own perpetrator.
Progress beyond this. To grow from this can be as hard as we want to make it.
I'm no saint.. I find it difficult..
Unlearning is hard. For example, unlearn how to read these words.
It's not the easiest thing in the world. Now imagine you're the person whose norm is that of a victim.
If compassion is based on understanding we have just taken leaps forward.
How else can we help the person stuck in their own bullshit that has nothing to do with reality?
