Responsibility versus Blame

How does it feel to blame yourself for a situation you are in?  How does it feel to take responsibility for that same situation?

Is there a subtle shift in your mind? When we blame someone, be it God, another person, or even ourselves, we are putting ourselves in the victim’s role, trapped and stuck in the past. When we take responsibility, we objectively note our actions that contributed to the situation and decide to move forward with different actions.  When we blame another person, our hearts are filled with bitterness, doubt, anger, regret. When we take responsibility, we stand strong and gain freedom and power.
