blaming parents and situations, and instead focus on present, take control of life and take ownership of our actions.

Regular physical activity, education and social support improves psychological outcomes – including cognitive function, mental health and well-being. Talking about the problems always helps as a therapy. Ask yourself this question, ‘If he or she is responsible, then am I not too?’


The parental blame game is a game of self-pity, self-destruction that’s played by people to their own detriment. It’s a game to be avoided. Make a list of all the things you love or admire about your parents and keep them in your mind at all times. When you feel the urge to blame them, just pull out that list and focus on the good stuff.

Take ownership of your flaws and see them as independent of your upbringing. Each day you have the choice to be whoever and whatever you want. Past is past, so get over it. Move into the future with gratitude for lessons learnt and dedication for continued improvement. Do not forget all the wonderful memories of your childhood. The laughter and love. Be grateful for who your parents are, exactly as they are, and thank them for giving you a life full of experiences.
