The input sessions brought home to their minds their past and present experiences as a victim. The realization of what it is to be a ‘Victim’ was an eye opener for them to move beyond the victim mentality. While sharing their own life experiences they were slowly directed towards adopting a positive mind set which would help them reformulate their lives in the future.
Towards the end of the day a medical doctor explained the effects of trauma on the body and the ways and means of body recovery. The medical clinic organized for the survivor group was well received and remedied many of their mental and physical aches.
By the end of the two day workshop the feedback of the participants was positive and they were refreshed and relaxed. They now look forward to the future with a sense of hope.
“The problem that we have with a victim mentality is that we forget to see the blessings of the day. Because of this, our spirit is poisoned instead of nourished.” Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free.
