Apart from the other 10 kinds of people - those who understand binary and those who dont

I believe this world is made up of 2 types of people - those who blame all thats wrong in their lives on everyone but themselves - other people, annoying parents, siblings, lovers, co-workers, luck, and so on, and the second group who blame all thats wrong in their lives on themselves.

I am firmly in the second group. Which group are you in?

i've read this post at least once a day for the past two weeks and not commented... but i've been thinking about it.

i have decided that i am in neither category. i like to place the blame where i best see it deserved. if i feel i am responsible, it would pain me to think someone else felt guilty in my stead. i would take the blame, and accept the guilt. but if i believe someone else to have cause the problem, and to deserve any consequent results... well then i am ok with passing that on.

I spoke to my dad about this and he felt a better way of putting this would be to say "take responsibility for" rather than blame. I blame myself for everything. I always feel like I could have done something differently and have ended up with a better result. Within reason, of course. I mean if I was in an abusive relationship and being beaten up every night I wouldnt make excuses and blame myself. But when it comes to career and life and chances and luck, I always believe I could have worked harder and changed the outcome.
