Blame is the redistribution of guilt.
'I don't like feeling like this so I'll make it your problem.'
'I don't like taking responsibility for my life, so I'll make you take ownership of it (and then resent you for it).'
'I fucked up, but it's your fault because I don't like the discomfort of this fuck up.'
The opposite of blame is responsibility.
The best way to take control of life is owning your choices.
The best way to show maturity is to not pass on what's your feelings to deal with.
The best way to feel less guilty is to give back responsibility to others where due.
'Here, I'll hold my 50% and you hold yours.'
