The Instinct to Blame

“Higher power, help me… It is so easy to… blame others and circumstances.” – 12 Step Prayer Book 

95% of the time, when I get upset, my first instinct is to blame someone or something. But since most people, places, things and situations are beyond my control, blaming them (or it) for my discomfort simply keeps me imprisoned in it. Freedom comes from finding my part, changing what I can, and letting go. And I’ve discovered the letting go is a lot easier when I have an imaginary higher power and simply give it to him. So today I’ll do what I can to make things better and then let go and let God when things upset me that I can’t change because when I do that, ILML!
