"Doesn’t matter what problem. Snowstorm. Family crisis. Marital gridlock.
When blame is the first move, it creates barriers rather than solutions.
In many ways, blaming not only removes the blamer from taking any responsibility in the situation, it also amplifies an atmosphere of emotional reactivity.
It clouds the room with defensiveness.
It hijacks the conversation and steers it in distracting circles where individuals who are already on edge just keep going round and round and round."
Not only can you apply this to relationships but your personal health and weight loss goals.
