Yes, there are times when the person or condition responsible for something gone wrong needs to be identified. Doing so can help identify how to repair or prevent future mistakes. However, there are times when blaming is not only non-productive, it’s downright damaging. Blaming prevents you from seeing how you have contributed to the problem which in turn keeps you stuck and prone to repeat the same mistakes over and over again. By asking yourself how you have allowed, chosen, initiated, denied, manipulated, lied to your self and/or otherwise contributed to the problem you open the door to your freedom. Have your ever heard the saying, “There are no victims, only volunteers.” There is certainly some truth to this. Step out of being a victim and own your life. Stop blaming and see how you can change yourself for the better. You will be happier in the long run.
