It’s so tempting to blame someone else for our problems, isn’t it? We blame our parents, our teachers, our friends, our enemies, society at large or anyone we can think of – anyone except ourselves. We’ve talked before about taking responsibility for our lives and giving up the habit of blame is another important step in the process. We can’t change the past. It happened. It’s over.
Our focus must move towards the future, towards the future that we absolutely want for ourselves. When we let go of the habit of blaming others for who we are and what we do, we can instantly feel the freedom of taking complete responsibility for our lives. This new sense of personal freedom creates the space for us make positive and lasting changes in our lives. We choose. No one else gets to make those choices for us. Certainly not anyone from the past!

It’s as if our problems become the lens through which we see our lives. So it’s extremely helpful to place our problems into context and see them alongside all of the more positive aspects of our lives. This does not deny the existence of our challenges but when they are placed in a broader and more balanced perspective, we do not feel so stressed and can then engage our creativity to work out the best ways to deal with our problems. Let us put aside the lens of fear that distorts our perception and learn to experience life from a calmer and more positive viewpoint.
