victim mentality

Hey Brooke,

As a coach, how do you bring awareness to someone that is operating from a place of being the victim? It seems that when someone is operating from that way of thinking, they will continually find instances in various aspects of their life of what they are looking for- which continues to reaffirm their opinion that they are indeed a victim. How do you highlight and bring awareness to someone/a client, in a way that invokes thoughtfulness and perhaps inspires change with how they choose to think, vs stoking the fire of the “victim” and causing them to react defensively, or once again identify as a victim?
