I have known about and applied the law of attraction in my life to some extent for a few years now.
However, I still find myself making up excuses and trying to blame others for their behaviour towards me on some occasions when it is all my own creation and what I have attracted from them as a result of the dominant vibration I hold.
It is sort of an instinctive response sometimes to blame others for their behaviour towards me. I then realise on most occasions that they are not doing anything to me, I am doing it to myself.
Why is it hard sometimes to automatically register the fact that everything we attract is in response to our dominant vibration and has nothing to do with others' purposely not behaving in a nice way towards us?
Is it because it is instinctive in our human nature to think about blaming others before blaming ourselves?

Because by accepting full responsibility for what we attract,we have to accept that it is within our power to change the situation and not anyone else's. This can sometimes mean having to do something outside our comfort zone. Usually it is just easier to blame someone else and stay within the framework of a situation we may not like because it feels safe.

It is true that people have difficulty taking responsibility for their own life. It is true that people tend to blame others for their problems. It is also true that the responsibility for your life rests with you, and not what other people say or do.
But if you are discussing the behavior of other people towards you, always keep in mind that they still have free will and can still choose to behave in a manner that (from your perspective) is not ideal towards you. You can't control that, although you can influence it.
What you can control is the way you respond to it. You can respond with anger and hurt, or you can respond with compassion and understanding, and gratitude that you still have the opportunity to choose how you live your own life. It's not always easy, but it does improve your quality of life, and it gives the other person a chance to do better next time.
