Blame is so uncool. So wrong. So bad. So unprofessional un-spiritual unhealthy undeserved. BUT – take care – unhealed blame can ferment into toxic shame.
This post is an invitation to process the blame that lives in you (that you may even hide from yourself) so you can set yourself free from self-abandonment and emotional self-neglect. We (in codependency) tend to champion others – even our pets – more powerfully than ourselves. Acknowledging blame can help you give voice to the bottomless pit of neediness within you and fill it with your own soulful powerful presence. You deserve to champion yourself with uber compassion and loyalty and commitment. You’re so worth it!
Debbie Happy Cohen is a master coach, and the founder of Joy-Based Living, an online global conversation where people develop the skills to create (internal and external) environments so that JOY can thrive in their lives.
Many people who are committed to having joy in their lives are people who have known its exact opposite. Therefore, we explore many aspects of joy, including its shadows. Awareness, acceptance and action are keys to opening the doors to greater joy; and courage is strengthened when people experience connection.
The Joy-Based Living E-book offers a foundation of 12 lifelong practices that can help you get in touch with your feelings, make a deeper commitment to yourself, and step up into becoming who you really are. It’s a great supplement any holistic practice, including therapy and coaching. https://joybasedliving.com/ebook/
