Responsibility is becoming a foul word in our society these days. Everyone from the President to the average citizen wants to blame everyone else for their problems. It’s easier to blame someone or something for whatever is wrong in our lives than to take responsibility for the decisions we make. We would rather blame society, our race, the system, our boss, or our company, instead of owning up to it. Franklin P. Jones once said, “Be thankful for bad luck. Without it, you’d have to blame yourself”. Sure, a lot of us weren’t raised with good parents or our opportunities were limited, but, until we are willing to take responsibility for our lives, actions or decisions, we’re stuck and life won’t get any better and things won’t change. Let’s stop blaming and start dealing with the issues in our lives and watch what happens.
I believe your attitude will get better and your perspective on life will become more hopeful, and you’ll start to see solutions instead of obstacles. The bottom line is that it’s your choice. You can play the blame game or you can grow and change.
