Powerlessness is the trademark of the victim mindset.
But do not discount the unfathomable power of choice.
The choice to accept reality as it stands.
The choice to respond intentionally based on personal beliefs.
The choice to ultimately forgive the perceived failure of God and others.
Yes, a victim is empowered by the creation of a framework,
Where meaning can be discovered,
And fruits of growth, faith and hope may be found.
