How often do we look for someone to blame when something goes wrong? Most of the time?
I hate to keep asking questions but, what good does it do to figure out who is to blame? I’m not talking about for the purpose of being able to discipline our children or give credit to an employee; as examples. Rather, I am specifically thinking about your spouse. Do you often blame him for things that are totally insignificant?
I use to do this a whole lot. Much of the time it was to make myself feel better. If I could make him mad, I found some satisfaction in that. I’m certainly not proud that I did this, but it is very freeing to have confessed it, granted forgiveness and now be able to discuss it openly.
Taking my frustrations out on my husband was so wrong. I have a great husband and, even in the days when our marriage had it’s hardships, he never deserved the heat I gave him. What I found was insecurities inside me as to why I needed to use someone else in order to make myself feel better.
Taking responsibility for who I am, what I say and what I do is a much better life. God helped me to see the insecurities that I allowed to rule what I said, did and who I blamed in those days. His mercy and grace brought out the authentic me. I am forever grateful.
