Why is it so difficult to take responsibility for my own actions? It is so much easier to blame other people or events. So easy to say “It’s beause of so and so or such and such that I’m not getting what I want, I’m unable to do this task.”
Well, I think I know the answer to my own question. Taking responsibilty means facing the truth that I am lackng somehow. It bruises my ego. It would mean that I actually have power to change myself and so change my circumstances. It means actually getting of my butt and doing real work, hard work – essential difficult work. And that is a daunting task. So much easier to bury my head in sand, to say I am powerless and blame everyone and everything else.
