Blame is responsibility redirected to an external entity. An example is it’s my boss, parents, sombody’s or God’s fault this is happening to me. Justify. Taking pride for unfavorable results from incorrect execution or strategy.Examples are making excuses. Complain. Wasted energy focused on the problem instead of a solution. Examples are usually generalizations without a solution.It is always bad. You are always wrong.
