victimization Quotes

Four of the best book quotes about victimization
  1. #1
    “Perhaps the most compelling evidence to illustrate the phenomenon of reenactment comes from the childhood sexual abuse literature. Being a victim of child sex abuse is a potent risk factor for future sexual revictimization.”
  2. #2
    “It is hard to break the cycle of victimization and reenactment if the survivor comes from a dysfunctional family not equipped to deal with her plight, if she does not have access to financial or educational resources that could empower her, or if she belongs to a culture that blames her.”

But in the past few years the definition of co-dependency has expanded to include all people who victimize themselves in the process of rescuing and being responsible for any compulsive, addicted, abusive, or excessively dependent person.”
  4. #4
    “The difference between a criminal and an outlaw is that while criminals frequently are victims, outlaws never are. Indeed, the first step toward becoming a true outlaw is the refusal to be victimized.”
