X – XXX’ed Out! Mistakes and blame. #AtoZ Challenge

A2Z-BADGE 2016-smaller_zpslstazvib

MISTAKES. We all make them. Some are tiny and insignificant while others are life affecting.

BLAME. It’s sometimes very tempting to find someone to blame it on, rather than accepting responsibility and the CONSEQUENCES ourselves.

Regardless of the size of the mistake, or what we may have done wrong in our lives, it’s so very important to admit when we’ve done it!

Taking ownership of every aspect of our lives is daunting! It can be overwhelming!

…So overwhelming that it’s much easier to blame the consequences in our lives on other people! Ah, that feels better… It’s not really my actions which have led me into this predicament… It’s so and so’s fault!

As emotionally mature adults, or to become an emotionally mature adult, we need to accept responsibility for our actions!

We’ve seen a generation of people being brought up in the mindset that everything we do, every effort we make is rewarded with ribbons and trophies! It would be easy to point a finger then at the younger generation as not having the moral fiber to take responsibility for their actions, expect things to be handed to them and to blame others for their troubles, right?

Well here’s a thought: the parents and grandparents teaching these kids have instilled these thought processes instead of teaching them to be accountable in their lives! Why did they do this?

Well, it’s hard to be an emotionally mature person! It’s hard to take the high road! Doing the right thing doesn’t always feel good! So, because we love our kids so very, very much, it can be quite tempting to want to cushion their lives as much as possible!

We live in a world where we expect there to be an easy button for everything… even for the tough emotional and physical work we need to do in our own lives!

Isn’t it so much easier to find a scapegoat? It’s the teachers fault. It’s my sisters fault. It’s my brothers fault. It’s my mothers fault. It’s my fathers fault. It’s the Mexicans fault. It’s the fault of immigrants.

It’s everyone’s fault that our life is the way it is, never our fault!

Pointing fingers at other people and making them responsible for things we did or didn’t do in our lives isn’t fair… Or true!

Taking personal responsibility is hard! It’s tough! …but it’s also a crucial part of emotional maturity!

It’s never too late to change!
