You may be the scape goat. People may just pin things on you because they don't want to take responsibility for their own actions. Don't take it to heart, karma always has it's way.

Sometimes people have their own stress and situations that they are dealing with. This means that although they are blaming you for things, just think whether they really mean it or whether they are just having a tough day. Most people don't try to be nasty and there's usually a genuine reason behind their actions.

If this thought is running through your head just remember two things. First blame is a feeling and like any feeling it serves a purpose when you understand it. Second no one blames you for the earth staying in orbit. So technically not everything is your fault. This is one of those cases where reality and perception do not match. To literally be blamed for everything you would have to do everything. So unless you are some kind of all powerful being that manipulates the threads of fate you aren't being blamed for everything. That said it can feel that way at times and depending on how black and white your thinking is it can even feel like that is true all of the time. It is not wrong to feel this way, but be careful about acting on that feeling. An easy way to fix this feeling in your life, if it is overwhelming you, is to randomly blame things. Have fun with it. Blame a coworker when you do something right. Blame bad things on the Norwegian maple tree, or any other crazy thing that pops into your head while you take the time to say "I blame.."

The most basic purpose of blame is to protect our own self-esteem by making others responsible when things go wrong. People like to place blame on others when they cant deal with the consequences/results.

May be because you are doing everything by wrong way , and you don't learn from your mistakes . you should don't decide or do anything before you think carefully .

It can be hard to feel blamed for everything, but it's important to know when not to blame yourself. Sometimes we take responsibility for something when in reality it is out of our hands.

Getting blamed for everything is general. Most people don't take accountability of their actions and in order to satisfy their own ego and pride, they end up blaming others. What you should rather do and see is see how you react to it. Situations are unfair and people are unpredictable, what matters is how you let that get to you, don't let that bother you and always love yourself enough to know that no, you are not be blamed Everytime, make it a point to let people know that you didn't do anything and holding you accountable won't be any good.
