The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: When You Play the Blame Game, Nobody Wins
Quote of the Day:
“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won’t succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.” ~Wayne Dyer
The Single Woman Says:
It’s no coincidence that the people who seem to be the most miserable in life are the very same people who also refuse to take responsibility for their life. They want to blame everyone else for their problems…they want to point fingers at the world for inflicting pain and misery upon them…and they want to find an imaginary nemesis to pin all their anger and frustration and bitterness upon. This is because it’s easier for some people to distract themselves with smoke and mirrors than to actually take a good, long look in the mirror and realize that the problem isn’t their neighbor, or their ex, or the person who’s prettier or happier or more successful than them…but THEM.
Word of advice, friends: If your life is consistently miserable, it might be time to stop blaming everyone around you & start looking at YOU. Your life can’t change until YOU change. The fruit of your life will speak for itself. If you are constantly down in the dumps, it’s not because someone pushed you there, but because you CHOOSE to stay there. No one is responsible for your happiness except YOU. Today: Stop making excuses and start making changes. It’s time.
