The Blame Game

When we don’t feel happy with how we look we blame our parents. When we lose our job we blame our boss. When our loved ones leave us we blame them. Even if  something is wrong with us we blame society. We were taught to blame our parents, friends, the environment, the situation, and even God. But we never place the blame upon ourselves. It was never our fault, though it always is.
People in all walks of life place the responsibility of their negative actions towards others so that they could overemphasize themselves. It could be in a way that a person would like to be perceived as theunderdog (so that he could gain pity) or the superior one (who would appear righteous). 
These persons who participate in the infamous blame game shows the prominence of themselves at the same time minimizing or lessening the effects of their negative deeds. Regardless of most reasons like revenge, selfishness, and even plain old laziness, no matter how many imperfections you found out about someone it will not change who you are. Pointing fingers may have worked to your advantage for now, but do realize this what you did was a temporary escape route of finding reasons to explain your frustrations in life that caused you to result in such action. When you thought you won this game, you thought wrong. This is a game that no one could win. You may have passed the burden and ease your shoulders by passing the buck, but one thing is certain and that is being still unable to change the hidden reason behind your unhappiness.
If sometime in the future we are dragged in this blame game, let us have the crown of responsibility placed in our heads with the ability to walk with dignity and not run away from it. We do not blame the neighborhood, the system, the society and certainly not God. We should take the responsibility of our own actions and in that way we are in control of our own destiny and our own life.

Dead Tree Fettish


I have a penchant for anything odd and out of place. Through my lenses this dead tree resonates beauty despite its flaws and rugged imperfections. We have a different perception of what is good and bad. Looking at this reminds me of a Wuthering Heights kind of setting and makes me feel sad for Catherine and Heathcliff more.
