When someone acts like a victim, that is the most powerless thing they can do. They believe that this is powerful, because they believe that this will bring them attention and pity. But that is a very sad way to live life.
Power comes from knowing who you are --- One with God and all that is. This is where your safety lies, where all of your "problems" are seen in a different light, where you have no fear.
For we are not of this world. We are in it, but not of it. When you recognize this, you can be who you came here to be. You can use the gifts God gave you to help the world. You play a role, but that is not your identity. You are Divine and holy, created by God as an extension of Himself, Herself, and this is where all power comes from. When you don't recognize your true identity, you will always feel inadequate, feel fear, feel like someone or something is trying to get you.
Everything of this world will pass away as it is only here as a vehicle to help us learn, awaken, and remember. If you try to make your identity in something that is false, you will always be existing on a foundation of shifting sand, and this is very unstable.
Your foundation is God, which is eternal, changeless, and provides complete stability. Don't give your power, the power given to you as part of the Kingdom, away to others, groups, governments, etc.
Be a warrior, not a victim. A warrior understands their power and uses it wisely to benefit the whole. A warrior takes responsibility for their thoughts and actions as it relates to being part of the whole, how we all impact each other. A warrior is gentle and compassionate. They have no need to demean another person or boast about their accomplishments for they know who they are, that they already have everything in them they will ever need to be complete and whole.
