Day 7


Do you think you are powerless and you can’t change your circumstances, or maybe you think everyone is against you?

After a breakup, it’s common to experience victim thinking, which can keep you stuck in a negative and disempowering mindset. Here are some common examples of victim thinking after a breakup:

Blaming the ex-partner: It’s easy to fall into the trap of blaming your ex-partner for the breakup, even if the relationship was not healthy or fulfilling. This can keep you stuck in a cycle of resentment and prevent you from taking responsibility for your own choices and actions.

Feeling like a victim of circumstance: It’s natural to feel like the breakup was something that happened to you, rather than something you had control over. However, this mindset can lead to feelings of helplessness and a lack of agency, which can prevent you from taking action to move forward.

Focusing on the negative: After a breakup, it’s easy to dwell on the negative aspects of the situation, such as the loss of the relationship or the pain of rejection. However, this can prevent you from seeing any positive aspects of the situation or potential opportunities for growth and healing.

Feeling like you’re not enough: Breakups can often trigger feelings of inadequacy or low self-worth, which can lead to victim thinking patterns. This can include thoughts like “I wasn’t good enough for them” or “I’ll never find someone who loves me for who I am.

This mindset can cause frustration, anger, and the feeling of hopelessness.

Action step:

● Am I blaming others or external circumstances for my current situation? Victims tend to believe that their problems are caused by external factors outside of their control, rather than taking responsibility for their own choices and actions.
● Am I focusing on the negative aspects of my situation and ignoring any positive aspects? Victims tend to dwell on the negative aspects of their situation and ignore any potential opportunities for growth or positive outcomes.
● Am I giving away my power and agency by relying on others to solve my problems or make decisions for me? Victims tend to feel helpless and dependent on others, rather than taking ownership of their own lives and making proactive choices.

List five things that you can do to start taking control of your situation without waiting for someone or something to happen.

Taking control is taking charge now, take responsibility for your life, and swap your victim mindset for the hero mindset.
