Today I am making an agreement and a vow:
I release myself, in perpetuity,
from any further involvement in my own,
as well as other’s blame-shame games.
full of subterfuge,
failures to bring
the lurking pain,
fear and confusion
underpinning our lives.
we turn to,
like trusted advisors,
when we feel stressed.
These patterns we learn,
then mentally obsess upon
and practice till we have them down pat.
When we deploy them,
we rob ourselves
of the freedom
and our connection
Next time you feel yourself
turning towards the blame-shame syndrome,
pause and reflect.
There is no longer any need
to turn to using these smokescreens
that just add to the confusion.
Instead, help to diffuse the illusions we spread.
