I was reading an article by Mike Robbins recently about blame and it prompted me to think about how often we play the victim and blame others in our day to day lives.
I often watch conversations unfold at work about situations that did not play out as they should have.
For whatever reason, these events did not have a positive outcome, and people immediately started pointing fingers and placing blame.
When you blame and assume the victim role, you don't have to make changes, you don't have to be a leader, you don't have to look within yourself for ways to be proactive instead of reactive - you don't have to take responsibility!
What would happen if we stepped up to the plate and put an end to blame? What would happen if we took responsibility for our actions and our reactions? What would our lives look like?
If we let go of blame, it allows us to take control, to feel freedom from negative emotions, to finally take the first step of healing and moving forward!
Look at your life and ask yourself if you are playing the victim, if you are blaming others so you don't have to take responsibility.
Who are you blaming right now?
How different would your life look if you took back control?
Empower yourself today and let it go, let it go, let it go!
