Blame Me

Abdication of responsibility is abdication of power to control one's outcome. This is not my fault. I blame you. Satisfying in the sense that you are in the right, have done nothing wrong, and all would have been as it should be if so and so didn’t do that thing. Feels good for the moment but the problem is you and so and so are still pooched and now you have placed all control, all responsibility, with so and so. You have no power to correct your circumstance unless you say “I am responsible. I own this. I will change this. Regardless of so and so.”
