What a concept! Blame no one… but take responsibility for what has been created around you. This idea is very counter to what seems like a knee jerk reaction when things go wrong in our life. I recently have reaped great rewards from such a concept. Someone I was dating had abruptly broken up with me. There I sat… sad and confused, then I decided to apply this “blame no one” concept. I found myself in my most empathetic place. Seeing and feeling how he heard what I had said to him. I was in his shoes seeing me through his eyes. I was humbled and rightly apologized. That empathy must have come through. This in turn created a shift in him. Since I prefer talking about instead of jumping to breaking up, this was not a relationship that was to be. It does not, however, take away from this really powerful tool. You can practice this “blame no one” concept in all your relationships and see how they will improve. But for those of you that have found your life partner, I would encourage you to practice this idea on a regular basis. Until next time may you be ever so humbled.
