The Blame Game

July 14, 2010

The Blame Game. We’ve all played it from one time or another, trying to pin the reasons for our bad behavior on somebody else. It’s my parent’s fault, my friend’s fault, society’s fault; it must be, because I’m not to blame for how I behave.

Gabrielle Nagy has taken it to the next level and has blamed Rogers Communication for the breakdown of her marriage and is suing the telecommunication company for $600,000.00

It seems that Nagy had a cell phone in her maiden name and the company inadvertently included the bill with the family’s cable and internet bill and her husband noticed hours of phone calls to one number. Mrs. Nagy explains, “He called and found out about my infidelity from the horse’s mouth.”

So, she’s suing. Makes sense. Obviously the failure of her marriage had nothing to do with the fact that she had been sleeping with another man for a year and everything to do with an administrative error on behalf of Rogers.

We might not take it to the same extreme but anytime we seek to blame others for our sin, we relinquish control not only of our past but also our future. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
