I’m not sure that I’ve ever described myself as a victim.

The point of that article (if I remember it correctly) was to point out that what is happening, taken without any self-illusion context, is perfect, whether one is being beaten to a pulp, or struggling to pay the rent.

When what is actually happening is recognized for what it is and not made to be about someone or for someone, it is seen as perfect, always.

Your response seemed to suggest that it’s easy for me to say because I have lived a blessed life. I felt that it was my duty to correct that apparent misconception. And, even now, my life is not perfect in the conventional sense; and I’m sure it never will be.

But what is happening is clearly perfect.
