Society has done a really good job of turning the word ‘victim’ into something to be ‘shamed’ about.
Which is more abuse.
That’s what people targeted & conned by fakes, frauds, abusers, narcs, sociopaths, paedophiles, sex offenders and all types of abusers etc are…victims.
I have been a victim to many.
Now I am a survivor, but at the time I was being hurt/harmed/lied to – I was a victim.
This is where a lack of empathy and lack of compassion, becomes very evident. Only people who lack these, choose to ‘shame’ victims/survivors of abuse. And this hurts and harms us more.
The word victim, is **nothing**to be ashamed of.
I have no issue with saying I was a victim. If I get hurt by another abusive person, I would at that time, be a victim again.
Society ‘shames’ victims.
And then inturn, minimizes
the harm the abusers, cause.
I reject this.
It is all part of the ‘shaming’ abuse victims….
victim blaming…. perpetrator protecting…
bullshit/abuse….that society promotes.
All shaming victims of abuse does, is cause them to suppress all their needed emotion/trauma processing and they never heal. They internalise it all and unknowingly, it affects the rest of their life.
The only people who should feel the shame– are the ones who caused the abuseand those who knew about his anddid nothing to help the victim.End of..
And it is very clear to me, how victim shaming, is designed to help/aid/enable abusers.
