"Whenever things didn't go your way, did you blame someone else? Did you say, "He made me do it!"? Did you ever hear anyone else say, "He made me mad, that's why I hit him!" or "She started it by calling me a name! I had to call her one back!"

These people are playing "The Blame Game." They believe other people are responsible for what they choose to do or not to do. They are actually allowing their lives to be controlled by the behavior of others.

DIRECTIONS: Have you ever played "The Blame Game"? In this space, write about something you did that you really thought was somebody or something else's fault…

Let your partner read what you wrote and you read what your partner wrote. Together, try to figure out who or what you each were allowing to control your situation."
– Carleen Glasser, M.A.
