Don’t Get Stuck on Blaming
Blame keeps us from addressing issues, and improving ourselves. All of us have been wronged at sometime in our life. However “Repeated focus on how we have been wronged keeps us stuck in resentment and inaction.”
In my case, I could focus on how I have been wronged genetically, with the short and stocky gene. However, short and stocky would be fine, but I am on the short and fat side, or the obese side. Which leads me to say, how screwed up the obesity chart is, but again that would not be focusing on anything I can do anything about.
Some of the suggestions this article presents which I like are:
Forgiveness: If we can find ways to forgive others, we can move forward. Forgiveness ultimately involves compassion and understanding. This includes forgiving others as well as ourselves for being stuck.
Become Stronger: Become stronger physically, emotionally and socially through exercise, medication, religious or spiritual practice, engrossing hobbies, volunteer work and counseling.
Support network: Cultivate a support network of caring friends and family.
Responsibility: Take responsibility for our own actions without blaming others.
