The first step toward happiness is acknowledging that you, and only you, determine your happiness.  If you feel circumstance or others are to blame for your unhappiness, then you are avoiding responsibility and giving up  control of your destiny. When you blame, you’re telling yourself that you don’t have control over your life.

Blame begins a process that confuses reality, distorts thinking, begins excuse making. Blame causes you to look for shortcuts to avoid pain and protect your ego that ultimately lead to failure.You are responsible for your own happiness in life.  Accept this reality and you are already on the road happiness.
