Thought for the day.....

All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you.
The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won't succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.

You're absolutely right. I wasted too much time in my younger days trying desperately to find someone or something to blame; had I used that time to really examine myself, I'd probably... well, no, I'd definitely be a much happier person now.

You are correct. Your/our unhappiness or frustration comes from expectations that someone will act or respond as you would like for them to, instead of how they did/do. They are not you/us they will never act/behave/respond as we would.(well they might sometimes, but to base happiness on someone else's actions is ..... unwise.
