Blaming others
Common sense

Action NO matter what happens, some people insist that a culprit must be found when things go awry. Someone must be blamed for every wrong or catastrophe. We must be careful not to buy into this practice in three ways:

FIRST, we must avoid being help responsible for problems we didn’t cause.

SECOND, we must also avoid any personal guilt for such problems.

THIRD, we must not fall into the trap of unfairly blaming other people.

The best use of energy we spend hunting down culprits is to fix what’s within our powers, to have the courage to change the things (we) can. Then we will have done what we can to reduce the number of problems in the world while putting our own talents and energies to their best uses.

I’ll keep some balance today if I hear anybody blaming others for the world’s woes. We’ll probably fix most problems one day at a time, and I’ll do the best I can with those problems I know something about.
