I have a BIL that suffers from this very thing. A talented and hard working guy
but could never see past what he thought was all the advantages everybody else was handed but him. He's lived in the unfairness of it all his whole life. I knew him as a teen before I even met his sister, and even back then he had a chip on his shoulder that he was always the one that was screwed. Instead of taking the matter into his own hands and overcoming what he saw to be injustice, he wore the injustice (in his mind) like a cape.

The reason he never realized his potential was because of this or that, not because of his decision to wallow in it. To some degree, it has been a protection for him to not be as successful as he had the talent (and time) to be. It's much, much too late now.
