Can we really avoid all victimization? Unlikely! Robberies, assault, theft, sexual assaults, kidnappings, torture, attempted homicides, among other things are all possibilities. Within your survival group there are also more likely opportunities for victimization including lies, gossip, in justice, manipulation, deception, bullying, rudeness, disrespect and a number of other things are extremely likely. Especially as the stress level goes up. Group dynamics is an underrated issue. Not to mention personal failures like bad decisions leading to negative consequences resulting in depression, lack of confidence, moral injury, post traumatic stress and the list goes on. I would like to bring up the power of forgiveness for long term survival. Resiliency in spirt can not be overrated. Forgiving those who victimize you in big and small ways. And forgiving yourself for personal mistakes. I’m not suggesting to always forget, but I have found that to win I must always forgive. Hate maybe a powerful weapon but it pails in comparison to forgiveness in my opinion. I would say your ability to forgive now is a strong indicator of how forgiveness or the lack there of will effect you post shtf. Thoughts?
