#289 Blame

“If you are holding anyone else accountable for your peace and happiness, you’re wasting your time.” Oprah Winfrey

Never blame. “My life would be so much better if my spouse would only get their shit together.”

Never blame. “If my childhood hadn’t been so horrible, I could be happy.”

Never blame. “If sexism wasn’t so rampant in my company, I’d be in a better position.”

Never blame, not even yourself. “I’m so stupid. How could I have made such a mistake?”

Think of it this way: blaming is the coward’s way to deal with life. Be fearless! Eschew blaming!

How might you respond instead of blame?

One thought on “#289 Blame

  1. My mother was a big “blamer” and I started down the same path. Then one day, I thought, “Who cares?! Clean it up and get on with life.” My, that attitude was ever so much easier and more peaceful. Now, if the problem is a big one, I tend to either help with the solution, or give the person with the problem my sympathy and put it out of my thoughts. “Blaming” is counterproductive and unkind.
