This just in! The main source of human drama is reported to be the Victim Triangle.
The triangle consists of:
A: The Classic Victim
B: The Perpetrator
C: The Rescuer
At any given time, you can see yourself and those around you starring in one of these 3 roles.
The Persecutor: “you hurt me so I’m gonna hurt you!”
Bleeds into Classic Victim role: “Ah, I’m weak! I’ll never be able to do it right! Other people are superior!”
In steps The Rescuer to save The Victim: “Let me take care of you! I know how to take care of everyone else but myself! I will do it all for you. I’ll make life all better for you! Nobody knows the trouble I know!”
You know what? These victim games are wasting my energy! They’re preventing me from living! They are downright ridiculous!
