Whose fault is it anyway?

Your day has fallen apart; do you know why? Your boss doesn’t understand you; do you have an explanation?

Your friend/spouse/colleague isn’t cooperating with the plan, and it’s making you rage.

When things go wrong, how quickly do you try to decide who's at fault? What’s the problem, really?

If you’re like me and, apparently, Brene Brown, you may be playing the blame game.  This three-minute animated video from one of her talks is convicting in countless ways.

Watch it once or twice and see if it doesn’t make you say, “ouch.”

If you took nothing away from those couple of minutes, let at least one statement sink in the next time you're tempted to play the game:

"Blaming is very corrosive to relationships..."

Who wants that?
