No Blame = No Victim

“When we forgive… we set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner we set free is us.” – The Art of Forgiveness

We all get hurt, but it is so hard to forgive when the hurt is repetitive or deep. Have you ever noticed how blaming and victimhood go hand-in-hand? My secret backdoor to forgiving is to stop blaming.

No Blame = No Victim.

I’m not always ready to say “I forgive you” or “accept” their behavior. But I can always become aware of blaming (in my mind or out loud), and simply stop it. This frees me from replaying the injury over and over again and remaining a victim. I love living in the solution and ILML!
