It looked promising. The path led this way: ‘all roads lead to here’. But having entered what appeared to be a lush, fertile valley we find ourselves trapped. The land is no longer the pleasant place we thought it would be. We are in the valley of victims.
The valley has no way out. The slopes on either side are steep. The end of the valley rises in a similar way, blocking our way forward. It might be possible to climb out… if we were experienced mountain climbers with the fear gene removed.
We’re trapped by our own thoughts and feelings and fears. By all the things that have happened to us in the past that we are carrying with us. We see ourselves as the victims. We are held here by the things others have done to us. They happened yes, but the only power they have is the power we allow them.
The way to get out of the valley of victims is to back out. We need to go back out the way we came. If we carry all the negative stuff with us we’ll find ourselves trapped. We become victims of our past. We don’t need to stay in this valley, there is plenty more to explore.
