Self-Blaming 👁

If you're attributing a negative situation entirely to yourself, you're Self Blaming. You don't have to be responsible for every bad thing that happens. If you're getting caught in traffic and you're berating yourself for not leaving earlier, you're self-blaming.

Would you treat someone else this way?

Example

My son is failing in school, I must have failed him.
