Blame Street Only Goes The Wrong Way

I’d like to remove the concept of blame out of our language, especially blaming oneself.
To blame oneself for all our troubles is an ego trip that leads to hopelessness.
To blame another for our troubles is to admit someone else has control over our life.
Instead of blaming another or oneself try asking for help and listening to advice.
Too often when what we consider is a tragedy or terrible outcome occurs, we ask subconsciously “Who can we blame, who’s fault is it.”
A friend taught me a long time ago when she was confronted by a terrible tragedy to say, “What can we learn, how do we prevent it from happening again.”
Blame never solved a problem or prevented a problem from occurring again.
Take blame and throw it in the trash can, its a good first step toward a better life, free of guilt.
