Of the five, the fifth, Victimhood, is by-far the worst and could be said to be the source of the other four. To be a victim is to believe the "He, She or It-did it to me". The only resolution comes when "He, She, or It" either gives back what they took or pays in some way for what they did. This is clearly an unworkable life attitude because the Victim is "stuck" until the "someone else" does something. It leads to a perpetual attitude that I cannot on my own, get out of the pit that I'm in. The only workable solution that I've found is to accept what has happened, then ask God to give you forgiveness in your heart for the person or thing that caused your victimhood. Then, move on, forgetting (to the extent possible) the events that caused your loss. The perpetual state of Victimhood can be said to be a demonic state.
