deer in headlights

Updated: Oct 11, 2022

Many are quick to play victim in the face of circumstance feeling that it absolves them of the responsibility without realizing that it also prevents the solution.

The ‘head in the sand’ strategy accelerates how bad it gets and how quickly it gets there.

It’s like the predator versus the prey.

A lion may pause momentarily - assessing the situation - before springing into action and going on the attack.

While a deer in headlights is paralyzed in fear - only to react when it’s too late - becoming victim in the moments before actually becoming victim.

Always playing victim minimizes the moment when we are really a victim.

We must avoid choice victimhood.

We must avoid sitting in the seat of self-pity for too long.


We must choose living aggressively with the little time we have.

For if we sit paralyzed in our victimhood we will never know anything else.
