The best possible outcome in any given situation will not occur when we blame others for what happens to us.
Blaming is an inability to accept responsibility for what occurs in our lives.
When you blame others opportunities are missed helping the person in front of you.
I render emergency dental care in Kansas City.
The front line is quiet tonight and every member of our team is on full alert.
A battle is about to ensue with an enemy we know all so well.
The enemy is mental anguish and despair.
Mental health centers resemble battle zones on the weekend.
Loneliness and despair unleash their demons in the middle of the night.
Wounded are sent off to triage with the greatest of hope that lives and minds can both be rescued from the ailments of despair.
Many nights have been spent blaming the client in front of me when overworked.
If the client had arrived a few hours earlier the day shift with additional staff could have handled the client’s problem.
This was the weekend, most of my friends were out enjoying the evening.
The desire to enjoy life with friends outside of the work environment was an ever present thought that something was missing in my life.
Blaming clients for missing out on enjoyment of life was not the real target of frustration.
A person is only blamable for his/her own faults.
Blaming allows the displacement of fear thoughts as we lash out at others.
My fear was the feeling of missing out on a social outing with friends.
Clients had nothing to do with how the workload was scheduled.
It seemed the hospital could only hire so many staff. Resources were limited not helping staff shortages as the evenings got really hectic at times.
When we blame others for our conditions we find fault with the other person. It becomes a form of criticism. We do not accept our responsible part for the role that we play.
When we blame life for what is happening to us stop and think of the other side of the coin devoid of finding fault.
Life is to be experienced at the highest level that is within your means in righteousness.
Storms will come. That’s just the way life is. There will be enough bad times for everyone. Believe it or not the storms also make you more aware of the days full of sunshine, promise and hope.
You are blessed beyond measure as long as blood flows through your veins.
The one who blames should take responsibility for their part in any given situation.
My responsibility on the job was to fulfill my work commitment to cover the shift agreed upon when hired to perform the duties of the post.
Blaming is an inability to accept responsibility.
When we blame we do not recognize our role in the problem at hand.
