Woe is Me

Many people have a woe is me attitude.  They feel sorry for themselves and they want everyone else to feel sorry for them as well. When a person is feeling this way they berate themselves which is not helpful. Things tend to go ary when people put themselves down.  The trouble is that children often feel that way.  They think if they are not treated one hundred percent perfectly that they are not loved, wanted, successful, etc. In a “Brady Bunch” episode, one of the boys believes he should be able to do all the things his older brothers do.  In one example, Greg told his younger brother, Bobby to stay off the ladder.  Of course, he ignored him and the next thing you know he was screaming for help because the ladder fell off the side of the house.  Greg scolded him and later his parents so he ended up sulking thinking he couldn’t do anything.  The narcissist is very good at the woe is me attitude.  They play the victim regardless of any circumstances. They make claims and outright lie so people will feel sorry for them and side with them in whatever matter they are involved in. They do believe underneath in their heart and soul they are losers and failures.  Another problem they do have is no one likes them so they have no friends.  There are many people in life that we meet who always seem to have this attitude.  With all the positive coaching and affirmation videos on the internet, maybe these individuals should listen and watch and take their advice for a positive mindset and life.
