Several days ago I wrote and published the Finding Freedom From Self-Victimization through Examining Triggers. In the article, I shared what I did to avoid creating problems for myself and avoiding self-victimization. I create video presentations of my articles to aid in accessing the information for individuals who learn more effectively through watching and listening. Below is a brief excerpt from the article.
What I decided to do, as shared in the article; was to avoid creating anxiety in my life. Anxiety, that would have resulted in self-victimization.
“In today’s article, I would like to share an awareness that I had that may be helpful to you. Several days ago, during and after a phone conversation I found myself agitated at the person. The morning after the phone call, I wrote them a letter and was preparing to mail that letter later in the day to tell them what they needed to do to avert my fear and anxiety in the future. But as the day moved on, I had an uneasy feeling about sending the letter.
In response to my uneasiness, I took the letter out of the sealed and stamped envelope and re-read what I had written to the individual. As I read the letter, I realized that I was reacting out of my own fear and anxiety. With my awareness, I realized that the fear and anxiety that I was experiencing was my responsibility and not the other person’s responsibility –who I was set to make responsible and blame for my fear and anxiety in my letter. With my awareness, I realized that I sending the letter would not resolve my feeling fearful and anxious, but only shift the blame.
I subsequently decided to tear up the letter and throw it away.
And then I remembered something a very wise lady shared with me, “If nothing changes, it will remain the same.”
