A wise friend once shared with me her secret to a successful and happy life . . . "Forget the back-story" - Leslie Ayers, The Job Search Guru Part of "Accepting what is," the first step in practicing Unfear, is to let go of assigning blame. When we get caught up in the back-story, in assigning blame, we arrest forward movement. Assigning blame is a diversionary tactic. It is avoidance, a fear reaction which imprisons us in the past.
