Victim Addiction 30 Days Through Self Discovery
The most important relationship you will ever develop will be the relationship you have with yourself. The more you love, trust and forgive yourself, the greater capacity you have to feel loved, engage in trusting relationships, and when you make a mistake, seek forgiveness from others. The way you value yourself will set the bar with how the world is going to value you. The Masks We Wear I have always loved the idea of going to a masquerade ball. The thought of wearing an elegant gown and hiding behind a lovely, sequined mask while being escorted by an interesting man wearing a perfectly designed mask of his own, seems like something right out of a fairytale. Can you imagine how fun it would be to design the perfect mask? One that not only looks stunning on the outside but has the ability to create stunning results in every aspect of life? The unfortunate part for most of us is that the mask we currently wear doesn'tnecessarily reflect the true beauty we wish to portray. Some of us go through our entire lives feeling mistreated, misplaced, and misunderstood. We struggle to cope with the confusion of unresolved pain and sorrow that we've encountered throughout our lives. When our buttons get pushed and these repressed feelings come out, we react by getting angry, frustrated, confused or hurt, and often blame others for the way we are feeling. Then, because we don't know how to recognize, manage, control or change these uncomfortable feelings, we try to dismiss them, thinking that if we push our emotions aside, it will somehow help us remain emotionally stable. These automatic habits create an illusion that may appear stable on the outside but emotional denial, pretense, and avoidance create insecurities that will prevent us from feeling fully present, engaged or connected to the people around us. The Victim Addiction: Thirty Days through Self-Discovery lets us learn to overcome self-defeating patterns one day at a time, so we can learn to live a rich and satisfying life.
