Quote of the Day

Blame is simply the discharging of pain and discomfort.  We blame when we're uncomfortable and experience pain -- when we're vulnerable, angry, hurt, in shame, grieving.  There's nothing productive about blame, and it often involves shaming someone or just being mean.  If blame is a pattern in your culture, then shame needs to be addressed as an issue.

-- Brene Brown, Daring Greatly, p. 195
