Putting the blame on other person is a favorite pastime for many people. You find such people at work, at home, among your friends, relatives, neighbors and among strangers. People make mistakes, there is no doubt about that. I don’t think there is any single person in this world who hasn’t made a mistake. We all do, we correct it, learn from it and move forward.
But there are few people out there who like to put the blame and blow it out of proportion. Finding fault and making the person who made the mistake look bad gives these people immense pleasure. I occasionally find such people at work. They use this as an opportunity to put others down. At the end of the day, we all belong to the same team and work for the same company, it doesn’t matter who did it. What matters is how quickly we can fix things.
Even at home, sometimes adults fight with each other for silly things and play the blame game when being caught. Finally it ends in bitterness. When things go right, it is our basic instinct to take credit for it but when things don’t go smoothly we look for an excuse to get out of it. If you are part of the problem then work together as a team to solve it. That will help you grow mentally as well as avoid unnecessary conflicts and stress among those involved. So next time you find yourself pointing fingers at others, stop right there and see what you can do to help.
