Finding Fault

The real fault is to have faults and not amend them.

~ Confuscious

In times of trauma, we become  so focused on the faults of others (opposing attorneys, creditors, banks, doctors, employers, etc.) that we fail to see our side of things. To fail to do so, revictimizes us. We don’t take responsibility for our own actions and reactions. Then, when things do not go the way we want them to, we can blame others.

Today’s Life Coach Action Plan: On a piece of paper, note what happened, who was involved, what were your feelings, and what actions and inactions you took. List what you were afraid of. This inventory taken daily will help lessen the likelihood of feeling like a victim.

Note: Write and let me know how this works for you.
