Do you feel like you’ve been a victim your whole life? Do you carry resentment and bitterness towards those who have hurt you in the past? If so, it’s time to let go of that Victim Consciousness.
This article will discuss 52 affirmations to release resentment and bitterness. When women can release their victimhood, they step into a higher consciousness and claim their power back.
What is Victim Consciousness?
According to Michael Beckwith, there are four stages of consciousness:
- victim consciousness
- manifester consciousness
- channeler consciousness
- being consciousness
While different areas of our lives can reside in different areas, one area many women can get stuck in is Victim consciousness.
In victim consciousness, you see yourself as powerless against someone or something above you: you are at the mercy of fate, God, or the president. Most often, if this is your mindset, you don’t even realize it.
But the signs and symptoms of victim consciousness are crystal clear: bitterness, resentment, judgment, harsh criticism, and, yes, victim-blaming. These are very low-level energies: not where you want to spend your precious life!

What Causes Resentment and Bitterness?
Resentment and bitterness are often caused by feeling like we’ve been wronged or hurt by someone else. Holding on to these negative feelings can eat away at our happiness and peace of mind.
And it’s challenging to release those feelings, but it is possible. I talk at length about bitterness in this article about the stigma of the “Bitter Woman.”
Sometimes, but not always, this resentment comes from having our voices squashed and being told that we don’t matter by the patriarchy or by older generations (think “mother wound.”)
How to Release Resentment and Bitterness
To let go of bitterness’s hold on you, you need to do some inner work. This means identifying the root cause of your resentment and then forgiving yourself and the other person.
Don’t get in a huff just yet! Forgiving doesn’t mean condoning what they did; it just means releasing the anger and hurt so you can move on. (You can read more about how to forgive here. And then try some affirmations for forgiving.)
And once you’ve forgiven, affirming your new attitude is essential. These 52 affirmations for resentment will help you do just that!
