When or what is it right to place blame, and when is it proper to accept responsibility?

My real life Example: I feel that joining that Navy was a Huge Big and perpetual mistake, but the Job Detailers at MEPS got me to enlist under false pretenses. I admit, I did make a huge life error, but I am bouncing back from this mistake. Also, if they were truthful with me, I likely would not have enlisted in the first place. It was a mistake, I wish I didn't make. Example of other people's mistakes; People getting married to the completely wrong person. They knew they were getting into, then the person they married lied about something big. "Fool me once, Shame on you. Fool me twice, you will never fool me again!" - President George W. Bush
