How to Overcome Victim Mentality and Take Charge of Your Life

If you can’t get over what happened to you or you often feel like life’s unfair and everything is against you, this post is for you.

Having a victim mentality means that you feel like you have no control over your circumstances or blame everything on external factors. Letting go of that narrative doesn’t mean you haven’t been wronged or your feelings aren’t valid, but down the road, this way of thinking can hold you back and keep you stuck.

In the video below, Nika Erculj discusses strategies and exercises that help you change your victim narrative and reclaim control over your life.
