"It's Your fault," "It's my parent's fault," "It's not my fault."
Besides that evidence, I can easily convince anyone with an open mind that I did everything I could possibly do to prevent the bad thing from happening. (It's probably quite obvious that I have certain things in mind as I write this.)
So why do I get blamed in spite of all of this? And why do I feel guilty anyway?
Correction; as I see it now [satisfied?], it seems to me that there are those who are not interested in the truth, but only that someone else (that means you or me) take the problem and/or responsibility off their hands, and take the blame so that none of it falls on them.
You might say they are looking for a scapegoat, someone to "frame."
In such a situation I find it best to say nothing, because nothing I say will do any good. In fact all protesting is only construed as defensiveness, which in turn is evidence of guilt.
I say I find the above to be the best recourse; I did not say that under pressure I am able to keep my mouth shut. Quite the contrary is true.
The first reason for guilt is fear that I will be blamed in spite of the obvious facts that I couldn't possibly be to blame. Is it paranoia on my part? Possibly. But there is also a possibility that it has something to do with it having happened to me many times in my life. (Many, many times.) And I am sure that I am not the only one who has had such experiences.
Reason number two is that regardless of how absurd the notion might be, I feel a sense of responsibility for the problem. (People starving in Africa? My fault, there must be something I'm supposed to do that if I did it the problem would disappear.)
Reason number three is the main one I wish to consider at this time.
I say it;
Then I turn right around and blame everyone else for my "troubles."
Who am I actually blaming when things don't go the way I want them to?
