Undoing the Blame Game

We've all had that moment when something goes wrong, and in our frustration and overwhelm, we quickly look for someone or something to blame it on. Often times it's our partner, spouse, best friend, or kids, though we're not above singling out a neighbor, acquaintance, or a stranger walking down the street. While it's understandable how we fall into this habit, it gets in the way of creating the healthy, connected, and supportive relationships that we want in our lives. 

Take a moment to watch this short, humorous video by Brene Brown for some inspiration to give up the game.

You are probably a bit of a blamer - most of us are. But why should we give it up? In this witty sequel to our most watched RSA Short, inspirational thinker Brené Brown considers why we blame others, how it sabotages our relationships, and why we desperately need to move beyond this toxic behaviour.

Can I recover from addiction?

I think this question is on the mind of ever person who reaches out for help and starts down the road to recovery. This video beautifully describes one woman's determined journey to peace, love, and health, when others had all but given up hope. Addiction is a powerful force, and yet recovery happens every single day. If you need some hope, check this video out and borrow some from Sharon.

I'm celebratin' 16 years in recovery this month so I recorded a short video. May it benefit someone who may be struggling. Don't give up. www.SharonShelton.com
