I titled this episode as if it’s a command, but it’s really an option. You get to choose to stop putting the blame on others. If everyone else really is to blame for everything wrong in your life; you may as well crawl under a rock because you have no options. I don’t believe this at all. That’s why episode 146 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is keeping the focus on yourself instead of blaming other people!
In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of focusing on yourself and your life and actionable steps you can take right now to allow options to come to you.
Some of the talking points I go over in this episode include:
- Key figures in history who had been horribly harmed but instead of blaming others chose to focus on what they could do.
- Why it’s actually paralyzing you to blame them, even if they are actually to blame.
- What victim mentality is, and how to get out of it.
- How, by blaming others, you’re abandoning yourself, and why this is a key pillar in what I talk about with all of my clients.
Focusing on yourself is paramount to change and growth, which is why I talk about it a lot with my clients and on the podcast. So be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
What is Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery?
This is the podcast “Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery.” It will help people who want to heal to move from fragmented to whole.
Hi, I’m Barb! I share my experience, strength and hope from 12 step recovery in each episode. They’re all 20 minutes or less. Unlike most recovery podcasts where you hear a person’s whole story, in this one each episode is about a specific topic.
There are many life lessons from 12 step recovery that are applicable to those in and outside of recovery. This podcast brings some of those lessons to the airwaves, including such topics as learning acceptance, recognizing and overcoming victim mentality and establishing healthy boundaries.
