Buddha taught that there is suffering in this world, it is inevitable, and the root cause of suffering is mainly the desires we feel.

Unavoidable life situations and circumstances can easily create a feeling of us being victims.

If we are faced with misfortune, hardship, disaster or tragedy, and accept them, then we are positive, make the best of them, and we get out of the victim mindset. Nothing should be on our way to be happy and alive.
