A woman was surprised when she came home from visiting her family for a few weeks and found her boyfriend and several expensive items, including two cars and some jewelry, missing from her home.

A little after 2:30 p.m. Friday, a woman called police and said she had just returned from Detroit and found the two vehicles missing, in addition to more than $3,000 in jewelry, her dryer, stove and TV, a Richmond County sheriff’s report said.

When the woman searched her home, she found a receipt from a local pawnshop for her TV. She also has not seen her boyfriend, the report said.

Don't just Go through things, GROW through them!

If she sees herself as a victim in this case , she has no reason to process and examine her choices. This was not a random act of robbery. She invited the would be robber into her life. And he robbed her of much more than material things.

I would encourage her to become an overcomer, victorious, not a helpless victim. The path to that process is self examination; not for the purpose of condemning one's self, but in order to grow in wisdom and maturity.

Feeling sorry for ourselves won't change anything and just encourages more unhappiness. No one respects us, until we love and respect our own selves.

I agree with you that anyone can become a victim through no fault of their own. But, many times, it is our own choices that place us in these circumstances to be taken advantage of. We need to learn to tell the difference.

I am "for" her, not against her.

Choices

Each choice lead up to an event.

An yes some times, Victims foolishly make choices that compound the ability for the problem to happen.

I'll be surprised if some one does not jump in an twist my point to avoid the point being made.

But, just look at the number of NON-FORCED Burglaries in A-RC. Generally this means it was someone they knew and/or trusted, or a door or window was left unlocked.

Yes they are still Victims.
But they also played a role (large or small) in becoming a Victim.

She is a victim for goodness

She is a victim for goodness sake! She was robbed. Sure she chose the wrong man, but he is the one who robbed her. Blame him.

Happy, try to get this. The

Happy, try to get this. The reason it is not healthy to blame others, is because you have NO CONTROL over them, ever, ever, ever.
The only person you can have any real control over is yourself.
That is the purpose of taking personal responsibility for our choices even when others have wronged us.

Sure she made a wrong choice.

Sure she made a wrong choice. Who hasn't? Hopefully she will learn from her mistake, but he is the one who robbed her. He is the criminal;not her!

Must have

been a strong relationship from the beginning. She went to Detroit for two weeks to see family, left bozo home, to "care" for the home but he apparently wasn't good enough to meet her yankee family. Sounds a little fishy to me.
