I explore how looking for “your part in things” (as taught in step 4) shows us where we’ve been doing things that have contributed to the difficulties in our lives. This gives us options for how to do things differently. This brings us out of victim mentality because we now see we have choices. those with victim mentality blame others and the world for their difficulties because they truly believe they have no choices. Recovery teaches that we do have choices, always. I share three stories of how my reactions to situations has changed drastically to illustrate these concepts. The three other episodes I recommended were:
- #2 Acceptance https://higherpowercc.com/2020/11/05/fragmented-to-whole-podcast-2-acceptance/
- #3 Victim Mentality https://higherpowercc.com/2020/11/05/fragmented-to-whole-podcast-3-victim-mentality/
- #106 How to Overcome Victim Mentality Even If You’ve Been Victimized https://higherpowercc.com/2021/05/04/episode-106-how-to-overcome-victim-mentality-even-if-youve-been-victimized/

What is Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery?
This is the podcast “Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery.” It will help people who want to heal to move from fragmented to whole.
Hi, I’m Barb! I share my experience, strength and hope from 12 step recovery in each episode. They’re all 20 minutes or less. Unlike most recovery podcasts where you hear a person’s whole story, in this one each episode is about a specific topic.
There are many life lessons from 12 step recovery that are applicable to those in and outside of recovery. This podcast brings some of those lessons to the airwaves, including such topics as learning acceptance, recognizing and overcoming victim mentality and establishing healthy boundaries.
