I am.s struggling to find the argument between the universe and not taking Ownership of ourselves…

I was actually just reformatting this as I realized today it wasn’t as clear to read on the Medium import as it was on the original site. I was trying to express that I see victim blaming as a symptom of society’s own fears and a (sometimes) unconscious way people deal with the discomfort of cognitive dissonance.

Aka they blame the victim so they can convince themselves it could never happen to them or someone they love. I think the more people are aware of this phenomenon, the less likely they are to indulge in the urge to blame the victim instead of the perpetrator.
