It is a very common story. I have seen it time and again. My sister has been doing what Michael Jackson was doing for years. She goes from one M.D. to another and continually finds ways of obtaining the drugs she needs. Today she is mentally incapable of handling the simplest job and has been on disability for years. She is only forty two years old.
She told herself for years how sick she was until eventually she became what she spoke. Making herself out to be the victim over the years contributed greatly too. She lied to herself and to others, believed the lies and turned her life into exactly what she never wanted.
My wife works on the other side of this mess. She is on the frontlines in making doctors who play along pay the price for their actions. Last month she received an award from the government for her work, but she says, “My rewards are in the lives that I have saved.”
I continually work with people who fall into the trap of victim stance, drug addiction and behavioral disorders through out my daily walk. This is my passion! With every life that I affect in a positive way my soul is nourished and I am filled.
The majority of these issues stem from not believing in ourselves, blaming others for our problems and thus anchoring ourselves in inaction. The truth is that we are capable of so much more than what we are conditioned to believe. Remember, we are only limited by what we think is impossible.
