Victim Stories

As the world's greatest psychological mentat, I must say that our society - the global one - is fraught with victim stories.

It is an old story where people place themselves as victims, relinquishing any and all form of control or responsibility to whatever is at hand. Whatever is convenient.

It is the ultimate running away practice, when you are no longer human or even a sentient being. You are just a victim, a worshiper of pain and therefore gets all the sympathy you can get.

The truth is, we all have more power than we dare admit. Whatever happens to us is a direct result of our decisions. We even command our state of being.

So if you are in an abusive relationship, you can always leave. If you are heading nowhere, you can always head somewhere.

"You don't have to be nowhere forever." - Delirium of the Sandman Comics.

In my world view, there are infinite gates - portals that can lead you anywhere, for you to have fun pretending to be anything. Because at the end of it all, we are not our labels or our jobs or whatever thing we call ourselves. We are not the experiences or the pain or the joy or whatever the fuck.

We are all limitless beings, capable of anything.

And those who limit themselves, limits their world.
