Some people out there are legitamate victims of crime or abuse and many of them work to stay strong and positive to avoid thinking and feeling like a victim. In fact, it seems that for every true victim of crime and abuse, there is one person with a victim mentality who has never really been victimized.

To be fair, everyone has had a victim mentality at one point or another, whether it was in lamenting about a bad break up or scorning an ex-boss over the loss of a job, but for some people feeling like a victim is almost a way of life.
