Lets start holding ourselves accountable.
Many times when things go wrong or bad in our lives, we look for someone else to point the finger at. If we aren't blaming other people for the troubling times in our lives, then it's certain circumstances that we use for the blame. We do whatever we feel necessary to deflect the attention from ourselves. This is one of the methods we use in order to make ourselves feel better about certain situations in our lives. I think that's exactly what it all boils down to; making ourselves feel better when we are down. There isn't anything wrong with trying to make ourselves feel better if we can. No one in their right mind wants to intentionally come down hard on themselves. However, I believe there is a difference between taking responsibility for our actions, compared to blaming others to make ourselves feel better. You may ask yourself; "Brad H where are you getting at with all of this?" The point that I'm trying to make is that we need to hold ourselves accountable for our actions. Consistently Putting the blame on others is the easy route out of facing our problems head on. What some people don't seem to realize is that -- no matter how much you blame your problems or circumstances on others, there is no way of getting around them. Why? Because you aren't getting to the root of the problem. Since you aren't getting to the root of the problem, there is no way that your problems will be solved.
We all most likely know someone who blames everything wrong in their lives on other people and circumstances. We've all done it before at some time or another, and some of us right now may still be doing it. This is a habit that we need to focus on stopping. Blaming others will not help in bettering ourselves. You ever notice how when some people do something good or get recognized for accomplishing something positive they've done, they are quick to take credit for it? However, it seems that if and when that same individual makes a mistake or does something bad, they would rather run away and deflect the blame. Please don't get me mistaken. I'm not saying that everyone is that like. We all know and realize that there are people in the world who hold themselves accountable in all situations when deemed necessary. It just appears to be so many people who would rather blame others and take the easiest way possible out. We have to learn to hold ourselves accountable for our own lives. All of the decisions and choices that we make start within us first. We have to remember that in order to solve a problem or situation, we must get to the root of what's causing it. That's the only way that we are going to learn to take accountability for our own lives.
Alright peeps that's it for this weeks blog post. I hope anyone who read enjoyed it. Feel free to leave your feedback in the comment section. Remember that the goal with this blog is to become better people individually. That includes myself as well. By the way before I go, I want to let everyone who is interested know that I met my 25 miles in total goal for the month of May. I've touched on it in previous posts, but I don't believe that I mentioned I had finished. I still have to post the running activities up on this blog, and I will hopefully get around to doing that soon. I also have several articles from Hubpages that I need to add. I'm looking to get all of that information updated on here soon. Also the "30 hub in 30 day challenge" that I'm doing with a friend on Hubpages is coming up soon. I believe we are starting on the 15th of this month. That should be both fun and challenging. I will be sure to keep anyone interested in my progress on that updated as well. Alright I'm out so until the next post, I wish peace, love, and blessings to all.
