Did you know that on the first Friday 13th of the year (and tomorrow's Friday 13th is actually the first and last Friday 13th of this year ;) just so you know...) there is a celebration of "Blame Someone Else Day"? Imagine that tomorrow you can blame all your worries and troubles on anyone else. Think well upon whom you wish to place the blame. You can do it only once a year!... oh, wait, but don't we actually do this on a daily basis in our life? Don't we usually like to shift the blame so we are never on the "dark side", in trouble? I think we have become very good at this; so good that we do not even agree/accept/admit that we do this on a daily basis. We started to lie to ourselves and the people around us. It is never our fault... the fault is always out there but never with or within us.
There isn't a certain point in time when "Blame Someone Else Day" started to take place but the blame sometimes falls on Anne Moeller of Clio, Michigan for creating this day. On the very first Friday 13th in 1982, Anne's alarm clock did not go off and she overslept; being late for all the appointments in that particular day. According to the legend she spent all day shifting the blame from herself to others - kind girl this Anne ;) right?! What would you have done in her stead? Would you have shifted the blame or tell the truth - be sincere! But why do we blame others? Why is it easier for us to shift the blame and point the finger at others?
Be strong and don't be afraid to set an example: tell the truth and dont shift the blame! Have courage and take responsibility! Tomorrow s "Blame Someone Else Day" but let's change that together: let it be the first day you tell the truth from the second you wake up to the moment when you go to sleep! Let's do that and see where the day takes us. Let me know how your #tellthetruthday went :) Sharing is caring so I will await for your stories ;)
