Why Blaming HURTS You!

By default, blaming disempowers you. 💔

Every time you blame, you implicitly tell yourself: “I am not in control.” 👐

And the more you do it, the less you’ll feel in control. 👎

It’s why blaming is so easy. It’s so much easier for us to take what we feel and any responsibilities off ourselves and place it onto people and things. We live in a CULTure of blame. 👇

Read the latest political drama for example and you’ll see what I mean! 😅

✋”But wait Donald! Some things are DEFINITELY not my fault! ❌ If someone’s cruel to me and I’ve done nothing wrong, why can’t I blame them?! I’m definitely not responsible for THAT!” 💯

I’m going to use the words of Scott Harris as he said it beautifully:

“Taking responsibility doesn’t mean it’s my fault. 🙋‍♂️

Taking responsibility doesn’t mean I caused it. 😣

Taking responsibility is about responding to the situation with everything I’ve got.” 💪

To stop ourselves from blaming is about taking our power back in a situation. It’s about being RESPONSE-ABLE, that no matter what your environment does that you are still in control. 👊

So yes, we can blame others.🤷‍♂️ …But if we’re going to take control over our lives, if we’re not going to let our environments dictate how we feel, if we’re going to take the reins over our emotions, blame is NEVER going to get us there. ❤️
