Blame Thrower: Excerpt from my book Satisfaction – releasing soon

This excerpt is from the Glossary of Terms of the book Satisfaction. In my book there are several terms I delve into before starting the book. They are repeated throughout the book so if it is a theme someone connects with then they can simply search for them in the various chapters. Terms include Wild Kirk, Myriad Moment, Embers etc. Below is the term Blame thrower

This underhanded art of shirking responsibility is familiar to all of us.  It is the easiest course of action in a frustrated moment to release the mounting sense of unfair pressure a man feels (As mentioned in the Term The Myriad Moment above). Resist the easy answer; succumbing to it only increases the pressure you feel from not growing.  Resist blaming others by making your belief in yourself the bridge to the solution.  Resist reaching for your Blame Thrower and substitute it with your Satisfaction Skills.

Excerpt from the Book Satisfaction about Emotional Agility

This is a brief excerpt from the introduction:

‘The aim of the book is to spur men on to access their emotional agility as they strive to get what they want.   

Going for what you want in no way includes ‘toxic masculinity’.  Words and actions that diminish your manhood are toxic.   Each of us is responsible for our behaviour   Each of us is responsible for our emotions.    The toxic guy who actually gets some perverted thrill out of imposing his rigid control on others ends up becoming a caricature of a macho guy.  Not cool.’
