Didn’t have the bite of admitting I could have been wrong. I’ve just been writing up three longish poems so I felt something short and sweet was in order tonight.

Cute yet wicked, but very substantial. ❤
Thank you. 🙂
Indeed… so much easier (at least in the short run)
It really is.
Easier to just rationalize away our guilt, but sadly, tremendously undermining in the long run…
Funny I always think it’s much easier to take the blame. Unless it means going to prison, obviously. It shuts the other bleater up and you get some peace.
Being able to admit you only laid the blame on someone else because it was easier is the first step toward accepting responsibility. These words could make that step much easier for someone in the long run. Expertly penned.
Good observation that blaming is “sweeter on the tongue”.
Within this brevity, you have put your finger on the pulse of probable complications.
Responding to this prompt turns out to crank open some matters deep; I’m enjoying the diversity out here on the trail.
Short and snappy. Like it. I feel like I’ve met somebody real here.
Short and sweet…and you made a point….excellent!
Blame is a way we protect ourself. You are right it feels better at the time, but turns sour later. You know we are never wrong!! :>)
Very good, Carole – so much harder to own our part.
this worked well Carol, it’s few teeth sunk in deep.
Short and sweet …. and haven’t we all been there!
I think we have all done this from time to time. Although I’m with Jane, I usually just give in because it’s easier. But not always. (K)
