When something goes wrong in your life, what is the first thing that you do? Do you look to find someone else to blame it on? It is my boss’s fault, my spouse’s fault, my dog’s! Or do you stop and say, “How did I contribute to this mistake and what do I need to do to learn from this, to never get in this situation again?”
Our society has encouraged us to find others to blame rather than to accept responsibility and learn. Blaming others allows us to feel like the victim rather than empowering us to grow from the experience and become a better human. What do we learn by blaming others? Not a darn thing except how to avoid responsibility.
