Now I know what you’re thinking: “Poor little monkey, he’s getting wet and feeling sorry for himself…”
Now I have no idea whether he is actually feeling sorry for himself, or if he even blames another monkey for shoving him out in the wet. He may even be enjoying himself! Although I doubt it as monkeys and apes are rather like us when it comes to being cold and wet!
But let’s pretend that he has been shoved out in the rain on that bridge by some other ‘mean and nasty’ monkey. Maybe he stole their food and it’s his ‘punishment’. Yes, I’m embellishing it but bear with me! My point is that he has a choice here. He can sit on the bridge getting wet, feeling sorry for himself and blaming the other monkeys for rejecting him. Or he could take himself off somewhere under the bridge and get out of the wet.
When we blame others for stuff that goes wrong in our lives, what we’re actually doing is giving up our own power to change ourselves.
Give up on your need to blame others for what you have or don’t have, for what you feel or don’t feel.
Stop giving your powers away and start taking responsibility for your life…
