the one-sidedness of a punitive stance (link to advice column)

This quote in an advice column got me thinking about the one-sidedness of a punitive stance:
"You’re the one who tore our family apart, so you’re going to have to live with the consequences." (Carolyn Hax column)
Why is it so easy to blame? "It takes two to tango" is such a worn cliche it could almost fall from unconscious lips and yet when it comes time to apply, it is forgotten.


  1. Sounds like you're having a ponderous evening.
    Good luck with the getting stuff done.

  2. Aww, thx EG. I crashed shortly after writing that but up early and productive today. :)
