There are several manifestations of the victim mentality. Trump perceives the world as conspiring against him and struggles with personal accountability.
Victimization stems from the reluctance to reveal a shameful past trauma, exposing one's vulnerability. As a result, they erect a wall of conduct to shield his authentic self from view.
Trump, as the victim, persists in repeating patterns and nurturing his ego to the point of distorting his perception of the world. In the case of perceiving the world upside down, how do you determine true North?
However, his inflated ego insists that his perspective is correct and everyone else is mistaken. This is how experts define cognitive distortions. Alternatively, I refer to it as a delusion.
Like any victim, he exhibits the usual reaction. He accuses anyone but himself, as if he is never at fault. He always finds a way to justify himself and denies any responsibility. He continues to ruminate over past wrongs, like a needle stuck on a scratched record.
Since he wants to keep the exposition away from him, he surrounds himself with like-minded individuals. Nevertheless, that connection might have its foundation in another problem, like the craving for power, to be associated with someone they deem influential. And he cultivates that emotional tie. Contradict this statement with a single word and you'll be immediately canceled.
Therefore, he will never truly realize that these fear-based actions are a result of his own creation and will persist. It will repeatedly bring that same energy to him. This is how the cycle continues indefinitely. He is so engrossed in the role that he fails to realize its lack of sustainability. One day, he will break.
Trump asserts that the election was fraudulent. He has the right to challenge the findings. He had a legal team that conducted a detailed investigation and uncovered the facts. They presented the findings to the Courts and allowed the Justice system to proceed.
The election outcome stands despite the lack of supporting evidence, as determined by multiple courts. Someone with a normal perspective would adhere to the judgments.
Despite disagreeing with the court's decision, he would persist and restart his run. Promoting universal voting rights and fostering active engagement. I'm not talking about the persistent allegation of an election theft.
His choice was to declare that the world is plotting against him. With that singular mindset, he ventures into the realm of fear. Fear fuels the prevalence of victimization.
People who have a similar viewpoint inspire and energize him. He used their fear to manipulate them, showing his cleverness. He employed it to acquire both their vote and their money. He angrily reacts, blaming the media for reporting inaccurate results that are biased against him. The cycle continues without mercy, increasing in hostility and causing division. At the end of the day, this is a situation where everyone loses.
Is this question relevant to the qualities of a presidential candidate? Should anyone who holds these same beliefs be considered suitable for an elected position? In my opinion, this behavior signifies weakness rather than leadership. It suggests a weak character.
I don't want someone like that making laws that impact my life and the lives of those close to me.
We require a person who establishes sound laws and enacts legislation that improves the world for the majority, irrespective of political affiliation. A person who perceives the world in its correct orientation.
Trump has a pessimistic view of the world. We need to elect a leader who recognizes the challenges but pushes us towards progress. People who view the world in its upright position. Individuals who will lead us to a brighter future.
If we have clear vision, we can safeguard the fundamental values our country is built upon. Democracy.
