A new columnist on GNN-i joins us every Friday. Today we look at what is really going on when we BLAME, and Jack gives us a helpful acronym to reframe our thinking — and our blaming– so we can build the life we want.

My acronym for blame is: B.L.A.M.E. Better Look At My Excuses.

This acronym revealed to me the realization how often I would blame things in my life. When my relationships went in a direction that I didn’t expect them to go, I was the first to come up with a list of reasons to blame the person, the timing or any other way my rational mind could come up with as a reason to the results of my experiences.

The acronym B.L.A.M.E. inspired me to realize I’m looking for a way to avoid the responsibilities of my thoughts, words and actions.

So when I feel the urge to blame a person an event or outcome, I know now that I Better Look At My Excuses first before making any conclusions about the results of my choices.

Next weeks acronym is J.E.A.L.O.U.S.
