Choose the role of the hero instead of playing the victim card !!!

Nobody is born a victim, it’s we who, over a period of time, succumb to situations and choose instead to play the victim because we find it easier. It suits us to carry the victim tag because we don’t want to come out of our comfort zone by taking on responsibilities. This, however, does not include those for whom life has been unfair by heaping impossible situations- my heart goes out to them and hope that God showers His mercies on them; may their troubles become small. My request is to those who are in a position to make a difference; they should choose the role of the hero instead of playing the victim card. Don’t be afraid of difficulties, hardships and unfair situations. Tackle them head on. God has blessed you with power use it and leave a mark.

The real ‘reason’ of an ‘excuse’ is to get off the hook !!!

People try to get off the hook by giving excuses. Actually the reason why they are doing that is to try and get rid of the guilt which invariably accompanies such acts. They are trying to lessen their burden by passing on the responsibility on to others. They mix up excuse with reason. An excuse is an excuse and most certainly not a reason.. Be careful while accepting excuses because you may unwittingly take on responsibilities which were not yours in the first place.

There’s another type of excuse- the one you give to yourself. You don’t want to get up early in the morning, or you don’t feel like exercising, or you don’t want to mow the lawn and so on, therefore you will try and justify your action on the pretext that you slept late or couldn’t sleep properly or you have some imaginary ailment or the sky is overcast etc. Actually you are trying to get rid of that guilty feeling of not doing what you ought to have done.~ Latika Teotia
