To Play the Victim or Not? 11 Insightful Quotes on Victimization

Truth be told, we all know what it’s like to play the victim once in awhile.

Maybe we were treated poorly by another person, a group of people or an institution. We may have been billed unfairly, our property may have been destroyed or someone else may have gone out of their way to hurt us (for seemingly no good reason!).

Though all of this may be true, I still think it’s wise to be aware of when we are playing the victim. In the end, bad things may happen, but we get to choose whether or not they make us true victims.

To that end, here are a few of my favorite quotes on victimization. I hope you like them!

  2. “Definition of a victim: a person to whom life happens.” ~Peter McWilliams
