What happens when we use our victim identity to manipulate others?
This is the question I explored for this month’s bonus — this post is less of me providing answers and more of me exploring and interrogating a discussion, alongside side you.

And (not but) I have been on the receiving end of someone weaponizing their victimhood status.
