Other times, the victim can in some sense deny victimhood, not forget, but reject the definition of and redefine the actions of the oppressor that are meant to confine the victim to a powerless role. This last way is the hardest, because it involves a lot more energy (in the form of thought, esp. about the source of one's emotion) and time than simply reflecting or negating the oppressor.
xxx This way takes ingenuity & creativity - another activity that takes a lot of patience, time, & energy.
