I figure the world is divided into two. One half believes that everything bad that happens is someone else’s fault. The other half believes they are personally responsible for whatever goes wrong!
I tend to fall into the second group. Looking at the handout from The Centre for Clinical Interventions it says:
‘Personalisation … involves blaming yourself for everything that goes wrong or could go wrong, even when you may only be partly responsible or not responsible at all. You might be taking 100% responsibility for the occurrence of external events.’
I can make a joke of it sometimes and take responsibility for the weather or for natural disasters – I know it is out of my hands in reality 🙂
Is it your tendency to accept the blame or to blame others for life’s challenges?
