One aspect of the Ego is the Archetype character of the Victim. It is part of our belief system clinging to fear and beliefs that we are “not good enough.” We may want to change these victim beliefs, but they don’t necessarily want to go.
The Ego has different facets that can morph and change moment to moment. One of the most prominent is the victim aspect of our belief system. The Victim is comprised of all the beliefs in a false identity, or false self image, of ways that we are unworthy. Even though these are painful aspects of our mind, and we want to get rid of them, they still may not go easily.
