Recognizing the "Victim"

A Victim Complex sufferer is a person who has difficulties when dealing with trauma, in any shape that this can take

Among the most common traits, we can often find the refusal to accept responsibility when handling their issues, the difficulty to move on from a tragic situation or a tendency to be both pessimistic and critical when talking about others.

Therefore, it is very often that these relationships end up after having become extremely tenuous.

When dealing with the Victim Complex, most of the individuals tend to search for the solution in their partner. However, when not properly handled, actions taken by people who believe themselves as 'saviors' can actually do more harm than good. 

Therefore, as expected, the real help can only come from mental health care professionals, as this complex can prove extremely dangerous when not dealt with appropriately.
