Sometimes you can work it out
Sometimes you can’t
Sometimes you’re forced to watch everything fall apart, it’s out of your hands.
Sometimes leaving is easy
Sometimes it ain’t
Sometimes it hurts to know the loving you had was slowly fading away
You can say whatever you like
As long as we just say goodbye
Blame it on me
Say it’s my fault
Say that I left you outside in the cold with a broken heart
I really don’t care
I ain’t crying no more
Say I’m a liar a cheater
Say anything that you want
As long as it’s over
Those song lyrics provided by the multi-talented, singer, songwriter, poet and Grammy award winner Chrisette Michele in 2009 was my jam! I can’t tell you how many times I listened to it over and over and over again. I’m a word person, so lyrics are everything to me and when they have meaning? Oh Yes, now that’s a good song. As a matter of fact, that whole ‘Epiphany” album gave me confidence and power as a woman, to be okay with certain decisions I had made in regards to relationships. Those lyrics were also powerful when I went thru a couple of not-so-good relationships that ended in the blame, being shifted to ME!
Now don’t get me wrong, no one’s perfect but sometimes when things end badly and when your name is attached to it, it doesn’t feel good AT ALL! Sometimes you have to kick your own self under the bus orrrr, take one for the team as the old saying goes, which is not easy when our name is attached.
But, if that means getting out of that relationship (whether personal, social or work related) will guarantee me a “peace” of mind to be away from toxicity? Then bring on the BLAME! In this video, I talk about a previous relationship I was in that brought on the Blame Game, how it made me feel and the attitude I had moving forward from it.
*I have some music playing but please excuse any extra noise you may hear, it was raining that day and didn’t know how bad that noise affected the sound =(
