The tipping point is really about our perspective. Rather than maintaining ourselves in a place where we are exercising an evolved sense of "me-and-you" (ethno-centricity), we can get stuck in "it's all about me" (ego-centricity) — especially when confronted with the strong emotions of another person, or an emotionally charged situation. That sort of thinking is both the root of self-blame, and a barrier to recognizing relative responsibility.


I thought this was a pretty interesting article. Dealing with self blame vs. personal responsibility is something I do a lot in my counseling practice. Clients often tip the balance too far one way or another. What about you? What are your thoughts on this article? Do you struggle to go too far one way or another? Why do you think that is? How do you think you could change that?
