After having taken my friend's photos, it was time for me to model. I sometimes really enjoy doing this to understand how it feels to be on that side of the camera. On the other hand, it's also a good exercise to learn how to explain your vision to someone who doesn't do photography.

This Is What It Looks Like To Deal With Someone With A Victim Mentality

Some people in this world are addicted to the idea of playing the victim. No matter what you do and no matter what situation you are in with them, they will manage to make themselves look like the victim every single time.

This kind of person will constantly make you feel guilty in every possible way, even if you don’t do anything to feel guilty about. They will somehow still manage to find a way to make you feel and look like the bad guy in every single story and situation. You will realize that you’re frequently trying to defend yourself when you’re with them, but still, you’ll end up being the one to blame. They might even manage to make you believe that you are the one who always wrongs them.

They will never apologize, no matter how many wrong things they do, because after all, the” victim” never really apologizes but gets only apologized to.

When you confront them with what they are doing, they will always manage to turn the tables and manipulate you emotionally into feeling guilty every single time they get the chance. The dangerous part is that you might actually start believing that they are the victim and that you are the bad person in the story while dealing with them. You might find yourself eventually surrendering to this idea because you are already being subjected to it so many times that your brain is starting to be wired into thinking this way — that the problem is always you and never them.

It takes a while to realize that the person in front of you is not really a victim but always likes to be one. It takes time to realize that they don’t do this just to you, but they do it to everyone else. No matter the situation, you will always find them managing to come out of it as the victim and get sympathy from others.

You will realize that they always tend to abuse people emotionally and manipulate them into thinking that they are the ones to blame in every single situation and not them. Sometimes the best thing you could ever do to yourself is to walk away once you realize what they have been doing to you. Even if you love them, you should never allow anyone to make you feel this way constantly. You should never let someone put this huge emotional burden on you and make you feel emotionally abused or full of self-blame.
