The Blame Game
Do you delight in blaming others? Have you been blaming God or the devil for every problem? Are men and women players who enjoy playing the blame game? Who would take full responsibility for his actions? Those are the questions that one must answer today.
What Is A Blame Game?
Like every other game, the blame game involves two or more sides that are not ready to accept partial or full responsibility for their actions.
For example, a father blames his employer for causing him to neglect his son as he was all the time at work. Similarly, the son also blames his teacher for not helping him enough. And the teacher also blames the headteacher for not providing adequate educational resources. Finally, the headteacher also blames the government for not increasing the education budget.
As you can see, the blame game consists of shifting the blame. One is passing the blame to another and another is doing the same to others and others are blaming everybody else. All in all, nobody is willing to take a partial or full responsibility for their deeds. Everyone is shifting the blame.
Why One Often Blames Another?
First it is very easy to blame another. It also gives peace of mind if one succeeds in letting another carry the can. However, the main reason why people promptly blame others is the irrationality.
Quite often, one can be overwhelmed or disoriented after an unexpected event that one has caused. That overwhelming effect may lead one to become irrational. Really, anytime, one is shifting the blame, one is irrational to a certain degree.
For example, one drops a very expensive vase, and one blames another with whom one has had an argument with the day before. Or one misses a step and falls. Next, one blames the landlord for having a stupid stairwell. Another irrational behavior would be to blame the cat when one is sick. In this instance, one is not feeling well so one starts kicking the cat at every opportunity. Though the cat has nothing to do with the illness, one is irrationally blaming the cat.
Generally, the overwhelming effect that one experiences after a failure or unexpected event can cause one to start the blame game. Indeed, anyone that is shifting blames is irrational.
Sometimes, a person who is not reacting may also shift blames. Though this time one is not irrational, one becomes defensive. In this instance, the person recognizes his responsibility, but refuses to accept it, and blames another for what has happened. One is willingly shifting the blame because one does want to face the consequences or pay for damages.
For example, one receives a fine for driving in the bus lane, but instead of taking the full responsibility, one blames an ambulance that was passing for forcing one onto the bus lane. One argues that one is just giving a way to the ambulance. In effect, one has rationally shifted the blame under no duress. A person can rationally or irrationally shift blame.
One can blame another and another the others. Others can blame another or others. A country or a nation can blame another nation. The Nazis of Adolph Hitler blame the Jews, and Serbs blame the Croats. The blame game is played at every level. For example the northerners blame southerners, easterners blame the southerners, and southerners blame the westerners. It is evident that people love to play the blame game. Many conflicts, misunderstandings and wars occur just because of the blame game.
Those unfortunate outcomes could have been avoided if one party recognizes its responsibility either fully or partially. Those conflicts could also be avoided if people understand that the blame game is usually an irrational reaction. Truly, one who knows that he is been irrational may take a step back to reassess what has happened.
The blame game is very unhelpful and dangerous game especially when one is overwhelmed or irrational after an unexpected or undesirable event. It can be avoided if one rationally identifies the real partial or full responsible. A person who stops playing the blame game is more likely to make better decisions, and improve conditions as he or she is dealing with the real source of the unpleasant events. The blame game does not help oneself.
