The more you engage in the blame game, the more you lose in the game of life. Accusing someone else for a negative situation is a means of defending yourself and avoiding your own flaws and weaknesses. I know because I have done this in the past. I appreciate that those challenging experiences were actually meant for me so that I could learn and grow from them. We get caught up in wanting to be right and are quick to point fingers at others. We need to take responsibility for ourselves, but not by self-blame either. The next time a bad situation arises, ask yourself what can you take away from it, and of course, always be mindful of what you can do to better yourself.
We all have one thing in common. Each and every one of us has flaws. Now I know some of you don’t want to admit it, but we all do. Why are we so afraid to expose our flaws? Is it because we’re afraid of what other people might think of us? We need to realize that we are beautiful even with our imperfections.
Let’s change the way we think about ourselves. It’s too exhausting trying to be someone we’re not. We are going to work on and undo what society has done to us for decades. Besides, how do we know for sure they are actually ‘flaws?’ A flaw could be beauty in disguise. From now on, let’s just be straightforward. We are always flaunting our good characteristics, but what about the parts we ‘think’ other people won’t like? Because guess what… they may have the very same one(s)! Love everything about yourself. You will be so much happier!
