An old quote of mine reads, “More than being identified with the victim in your story, be identified with the observer of it. The latter is closer to the truth.”
In this episode of The Unlearning Playground, I expand on what I mean when I say this.
Like most of my everyday-life advice episodes, this one is also centred around wisdom that’s applicable to and is pragmatically focussed on our day-to-day lives.
And you’ll also see why this is quite a necessary collective message for our times too, because if you look closely, we seem to be collectively rigged by this virus of victimhood.
If I was to summarise the need for this episode and the message therein, I would summarise it in this beautiful quote whose author I am unaware of, "If you don’t heal what hurt you, you’ll bleed on people who didn’t cut you."
Tune in to the episode to know more and know better.

Until next time.
