i think i fall in the survivor category most of the time but lately i've been visiting the victim category. i'm hoping to be able to work on that with counseling next week.

Thanks. I really like this chart. Made me relook at a few things I've been doing lately. It gives me things to work toward to get out of that victim mode again.

This chart was very useful. I found that I am more Victim than Survivor by one of the things on the list. I'm trying so hard to be a Thriver especially in this new relationship I'm in with someone who loves me and is aware of my past.

Thank you so much for posting this. I'm a pretty even balance between victim and survivor. An improvement which I feel has happened over the past week.
