They’re All to Blame

He villainized all who opposed him.

I used to work for someone who never took responsibility for his mistakes. Over time he carried his charade to new heights by placing blame of his shortcomings on co-workers. Without reason, he thought everyone around him should automatically help protect his image and he labeled anyone not willing to participate as “incompetent” or “not a team player.” Eventually things got so out of control, he went as far as to suggest colleagues were trying to weave a plan to ruin his career. I was so pumped the day I received company recognition for the work I was doing, a lot of which was actually his responsibility. How’s that for irony!

If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn’t sit for a month. -Theodore Roosevelt

Inspired by 6WSP (villain), WOTD (blame), RDP (weave) and 3TC #431 (automatic, pump, reason)


You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
