The Blame Game

Do you ever wonder why some people seem to always blame others when things do not go according to plan?

I hear people say, "Man, I got Scr*wed!", "I'm getting a raw deal!", "They are f*cking me like a alley cat". (sorry, I hear that alot from a friend).

I also hear, "You should have.." "If only You had listened..", "You, you, you..."


I know I can't make everyone see things my way. Obviously, my way isn't always the right way. What works for me may not for others. I just can't help but think that it is what it is. That stuff happens and it's up to you to deal with it.

For me, no matter how tough it gets, I have to believe that God won't put more in front of me than I can handle. That there is a reason for what I must endure. I don't like it, but it is healthier for me to assume that I will learn from this and become stronger for it.

Blame someone else? I sure could. In fact, if I wanted, I am sure I could point my finger at someone or thing for everything that has happened. But I won't. It would not be fair nor would it fix anything. Just make that person feel an unnecessary guilt.

I don't have the answers. I just go with the flow and pray for a better day. I also count my Blessing, and am thankful things are not worst. Someone may always have things better, but someone else has things worst off. Being in the middle isn't so bad.

Good one.

Unfortunately, I'm very bad at blaming others in our household and myself as well. I pray about it and try to improve, but I've very critical and that's the problem.

I'm almost as tired of people who cast blame as I am of people who say, "I was afraid that was going to happen to you." Even when I've made a decision that turns out to be wrong, the "I told you so" attitude is not helpful. It just hurts. I'm glad you recognize that you don't do this. See? Another thing to be proud of!
