Ep. 266: How to Stop Victimizing Yourself and Reclaim Your Power

Learning that I had a victim mentality and coming out of it was – hands down – the biggest mindset shift from my recovery. For that reason, this has been a huge topic of conversation on the podcast and something I will continue talking about as things come up to help others do the same. This week’s episode 266 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about how to stop victimizing yourself and reclaim your power!

In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing how those of us who live in a victim mentality can unconsciously victimize or re-victimize ourselves and actionable steps you can take right now to reclaim your power back and shift out of this mindset. 

Some of the talking points I go over in this episode include:

  • Victim mentality doesn’t mean you’re weak or bad, it’s a way of thinking and thus, something you have the power to change.
  • The insidious nature of victim mentality and how it is internalized through thoughts and actions. 
  • Action steps you can use to focus on the present moment and overcome victim mentality. 

When you start to see that you are living in victim mentality, you can start to see your choice of coming out of it. 

Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
