If you’re like me, you like peace and harmony in your life. And that means having peace and harmony with the people in your life. But I discovered something quite ironic…
Some people aren’t happy unless they’re unhappy.
Some people are so invested in being a victim, they reject anything that could be a good thing for them. And they often ridicule, belittle, or even attack people who are striving to do, have and become more in life.
By all means, try to make peace with them. Just know that some people who attack you don’t ever want peace with you. No matter what you do or say they cannot be won over because they thrive on their perceived injustice and being the aggrieved party. Their entire identity is tied up in being a victim.
Reach out with love. But if they’re not willing to accept it, set boundaries on how you will allow yourself to be treated. If they don’t honor the boundaries, get them out of your life.
You’re not the victim whisperer.
