Do you still get blamed for the things you’re not responsible for and is that blame being directed towards someone who clearly isn’t to blame or remotely responsible?
The mind continues to reason, understands the logic and the reasoning, but still won’t let it go. Perhaps we think that if we let go of blaming someone that would escalate into us carrying even more guilt. Unfortunately, when we carry with the blame game, all we’re doing is shifting the blame on to someone else, without taking any form of responsibility for ourselves if we are to blame.
It’s important that although we may not initially be to blame for where we find ourselves, we must take responsibility for moving on with our lives instead of shifting the blame on to someone else. Spiritually we cannot heal without letting go of someone else’s guilt, which we then choose to direct at someone else.
The truth is we should own and take responsibility for ourselves, regardless of whether we’re initially to blame. If we decide to direct what we feel at another person, we need take responsibility for that too.
