Do you ever feel as if you are a scapegoat for another person? Often people make others the fall guy or gal because it is easier. Having another person take the blame is wrong yet it occurs every day. In many shows on TV and even movies someone has to be the fool. People often do this as an escape from their real issues in life. Take a narcissist for example. Her or she will do anything and everything wrong and yet magically they are so convincing that others will believe them and dislike whomever he has used as a scapegoat. Often, when children grow up their parents become a scapegoat if they do not succeed. For example, a man or woman may start a business. Their parents were successful in their own businesses so it was a natural progression. Yet, the parents, even though they were learning themselves, didn’t teach the children. Instead, they gave them the finer things in life when they should have been teaching them about every day business. The truth is that in every day business there are a variety of types of work, programs, projects and just plain effort that is involved. Relying on others can be a person’s downfall. Never believe that the so called “experts” are correct. My neighbor had her taxes filed every year by a person she believed was a CPA. Unfortunately, this accountant took advantage of all of her clients and even though my neighbor did nothing wrong, she ended up being caught in a huge mess. The sad part was that all of the CPA’s clients became her scapegoats. In the Good Gus series everything was tell it like it was, take responsibility for your actions and do not blame others.
