Starting to Untangle from Blame

Welcome to Day 3 of the Untangling Draining Habits challenge.

Over 7 days, we are bringing awareness to different habits that cause undue stress or anxiety in our lives. At the end of the each post, we share with you one simple step you can take to start to untangle from the draining habit.

So far we have brought awareness to Overcommitment and Self-Doubt.

Today we are going to focus on the habit of blame.

Draining Habit #3: Blame

One of the most destructive habits human beings can have is blame.

Now please don’t get me misunderstand me here, I know many people have had really challenging situations go on in their life (I get that very deeply) and yes it could be quite easy to play the blame game. However, I believe we are here to learn what we need to and master life.

Like self-doubt and overcommitment, blame can effect all areas of life. It can effect your relationships, work, health, happiness as well as your dreams.

There are many ways to transform blame, however I am going to share one, and that is…

Being responsible and living above the line.

Not sure what I mean by that? I created a clip that you can watch below.


Challenge: Starting to Untangle from Blame –

As you are going through life today, notice when you are blaming someone or something. You could be blaming the weather, another person, time, your car. Some situations could include noticing when you haven’t heard back from someone, gone to the gym, sent that birthday card, completed an assignment or sent the e-mail.

When you notice these situations, write them down (e.g. who and what you are blaming). At the end of the day, reflect on the situations and check to see if there is any substance to the blame. As you are reflecting, make sure you use your self-compassion and remember none of us are perfect and we do make mistakes.
