Persecution Complex

Many individuals have a persecution complex. They believe that others are targeting them to harm them in some way. Frequently, it is all in their mind and no one is interested in doing anything to them.  On “Leave it to Beaver,” the Beaver was acting as if his friends were going to hurt him.  Wally told him to stop or he would develop a persecution complex.  People who tend to believe they are inferior, a failure, a loser, or even paranoid think people out to get them.  Funny thing, though, most people are not.  They are too busy with their own lives and their problems just coping everyday.  There are individuals who lead happy productive lives with few problems.  They are the fortunate people.  However, most people have a variety of problems such as lack of money, family issues, unemployment, etc.  For those people, trying to make it through the day is a chore. When you read the news you realize that there are millions of people with extreme problems that make yours look miniscule. For example, the countries with wars and immigrants floating in the sea hoping for a new life; the individuals who are caught living through the wars; and the people who do not have enough food to eat, etc. The list is endless.  Small things in life that people blow out of proportion and then think they are being persecuted when criticized, need to re-examine their lives and appreciate the positive every day.  Many of the chapters in “Misplaced Trust” include individuals who made a mess of their parents’ estate and when the beneficiaries went after them, they developed a persecution complex.
