Our background and circumstances
may have influenced who we are, but,
we are responsible for who we become.
Took this from my sister’s Facebook page. It rungs true….how many of us are guilty of pointing fingers at other people (especially our parents) for how we turned out?
There comes a point when we, ourselves, are solely responsible for our actions. If we can distinguish right from wrong and there is nothing wrong with our mental intellect I am hard pressed to feel sorry for someone when they continuously blame other people for their lack of action, troubles, and unhappiness.
As the saying goes..WE are the captains of our ships and in the end it is WE who will answer for our transgressions. Not our mom, not our dad, not our boss or our best friend.
“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won’t succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.” Wayne Dyer
