|Personal Reflection |

I have not posted anything received from DailyOM for a while however when this came through, I was reminded once again, just how timely their postings can be. The focus of this particular post is largely on "blame" and how we can easily shift the blame onto someone else as opposed to owning it ourselves. Falling under this category is also how we interpret things.
In our modern age where communication is often exchanged with limited (if any) human emotion, we are extremely vunerable to projecting our perceptions onto such exchanges which can easily transfer through to miscommunication where the original intention is overlooked (due to unnecessarily emotive responses). As with anything, how we react to something (whether it is an email exchange, an image, news report, etc) is primarily our responsibility - something we each need to acknowledge and own as opposed to projecting the "blame" of how we have reacted onto someone else.
