It’s important to take action–any action–on a daily basis.  It does not really matter whether your action is successful or not.  What matters is making a decision, a choice and acting on it in some way.  This fights feelings of helplessness and hopelessness.  Taking action empowers and affirms our ability to influence others, life and ourselves.  We are not helpless victims to other people and circumstances.  Sure, things may affect us in a bad way.  However, if we take some action in our own behalf, against that which is trying to defeat us, we will feel better about ourselves and our ability to protect ourselves and make a better life for our self.  In short, we will not feel like victims even when we have been victimized.
