The first step towards self-fulfillment and happiness is to realize that there is a problem that you’re obsessing over. For students, this could include bitterness because of a break-up, a bad grade, an argument with a parent or even an insecurity.

Playing the victim is a result of not being able to let things go. This means that the pain someone feels manifests into a self-pitying response, they hold on to the belief that they are undeniably right in their anger. Taking responsibility for your pain, whether or not you believe you are right, can lead to a healthier state of mind.

Some people can even find themselves being controlled by negative emotions such as fear, anger, stress, anxiety and depression.
