Blaming keeps us stuck.


When something goes wrong, how do you respond?

Externalize the problem and blame someone else for it.


Take responsibility for the problem and search for a solution.

It is only when we acknowledge our contribution to life circumstances that we have the power to change for the better.

  1. This is so key, Andrea – taking responsibility. It’s something that is a life-long lesson for me, I sense. I do my best to be vigilant, and boy do I work it. Forgiveness helps, as does reaffirming what is true. 🙂
    Many blessings! Thank you.

  2. I usually take responsibilities for my life. However, sometimes I fail to admit to myself that externalizing factors are outside of my control. This is what the serenity prayer is for to remind us daily to accept the things we cannot control.

    1. Thanks for the feedback! Feeling safe & removing judgement (no matter what) makes all the difference. Otherwise known as unconditional positive regard in a therapeutic setting (and unconditional love in life). Something that helps us stay true (and free), no matter the action.💫💛

  3. I think when you blame someone, or even blame yourself, you are creating more stress. Stress is the difference between how you expect things to be and how they really are. Why do we need to blame at all? Just accepting things for what they are is the key…though that’s extremely difficult to do. It’s something I struggle with.

    1. Yes, replace blame with acceptance and/or responsibility taking. The point is to reclaim your power – instead of giving it to someone else. Thanks for sharing! Your insights are so helpful.
