Using the term victim can be a state of being or mentality for a lifetime.
The caterpillar has 16 legs that travel along as they honor the space they are in learning to survive. They start just as they are : a caterpillar. They know change is coming and prepare for it by building a healing cocoon of metamorphosis. To the caterpillar it must feel like death to crawl in, slow down, and become still enough to allow the process.
Be the Caterpillar!
