Woman, quit playing the victim when it comes to your life

Woman, quit playing the victim.

Having a victim mentality and enjoying it will not do you good.

If you live all your life not taking responsibility for your actions, you will end up angry and sad.

No one can live your life for you so stop putting your life and happiness in someone else’s hands.

Do what’s best for you at all times. Don’t wait for someone else to take responsibility for what you are supposed to do for yourself.

You owe yourself love, care, protection and self preservation. Playing the victim all the time won’t let you enjoy your life.

When you go around seeking for pity party without learning from your experience, you are playing the victim.

Sad woman

When you are a bad relationship and instead of leaving, you keep complaining to everyone you meet, you are slowly destroying your life.

When you keep allowing a man to disrespect you because you love the pity you get from people when you narrate your ordeal, you are playing the victim.

After all the ughhs and ahhs and the God punish that wicked man and all the midnight curses you place on him for aborting 10 pregnancies for him, what happens?

What are you doing to improve your life?

What are you doing to make sure you don’t end up with an irresponsible man in the future?

What are you doing to better yourself and be ready when the right man comes along?

Are you still having unprotected sex in your new relationship because you want to keep a man by your side for life?

Who are the people you hang out with? Do they tell you to take charge of your life or they keep lying to you?

Woman, don’t wait for someone else to do for you what you can do for yourself. Take responsibility for your life.

Quit playing the victim. It will do you no good. Learn from your mistakes and move on to something better.

    Mistakes are our teacher. If we don’t learn from them, we’ll down the wrong path.
