Blame is mental glue- how to get unstuck!

Blame is Mental Glue!

When you blame others, you give up your power to change. Robert Anthony Click To Tweet

Blame is like mental glue!

It attaches your thoughts to anger, injustice

and the crippling effects of a problem.

It sticks to an image of the people who have hurt you and

limits your  focus on the person who can help you heal, YOU!

It adheres your mind to the  “wrong” of others

and ignores any wrong in your own life.

Blame is sticky business because

it can’t give you a solution

it can’t make you feel better

it can’t help you move forward in life

it can’t change your future

Blame labels you a helpless victim and never an overcomer Click To Tweet

How can we start to feel unstuck from Blame?

We can begin to detach from blame by practicing an opposite action found in scripture!

 (Colossians 3:12-13 ESV)

But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, sslander, and obscene talk from your mouth.

Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive

You can:

Let go of blaming others and

learn to solve your own problems

seek compassion for those who have hurt you

 release your emotional suffering with forgivness

discover new options to promote peace in the future

breath in appreciation and gratitude for the good things in your life

purposefully exhale the negative thoughts

Live in the moment and not the painful past

Trust that all things will be make right in God’s timing

 

 

“Concern yourself more with accepting responsibility than with assigning blame.

Let the possibilities inspire you more than the obstacles discourage you.” Ralph Marston

 

 

A prayer to get unstuck from Blame:

God, I realize that I have been blaming (a person or a situation) for causing me pain. I acknowledge the wrong that was done to me through this person or situation and I chose to forgive them, in Jesus name. I ask that you would release my negative emotions from this situation and fill me with the knowledge that you will help me as I trust you to reveal to me new solutions and blessings in my future.

Amen.
