When we don’t feel safe our body can react in various ways, two of these reactions being to feign or to fawn. To “feign” means to pretend or put on a show, and to “fawn” means to seek approval from others. 
Sometimes the most obvious realities can be the most difficult to see, thus becoming the water we swim in. One of the realities many of us swim in is the victim mindset.
If something isn’t working in your leadership at work or your life, take a good hard look at yourself before blaming, judging and pointing your fingers at others.
