I have noted that far too often the survivors of abuse who need to feel like they are ‘strong warrior survivors’………. choose to also indulge in victim shaming.
They shame other survivors, for ‘not being strong enough’. They like to compare themselves to those who they want to deem to be weak.
They use toxic phrases like ‘don’t be a victim’. ‘I’m not a victim, so you should stop acting the victim’…. which is victim shaming….
I remind survivors………… if you need to have the persona and identity of being a ‘strong warrior survivor’………. that’s okay – but do NOT shame others in the process.
You are not stronger than others, because when you shame other survivors – you are in fact showing your weakness….
Your weakness of little empathy, your selfish need to put others down – to boost your own ego driven identity.
And that is not strength at all.
In fact, it is being abusive.
And it’s narcissism.
