Who Takes The Blame?

Someone else is always responsible for the bad things that befall us.

A man dies in a tragic accident because he falls asleep behind the wheels, and rumour circulates that his uncle, who’s an enemy of progress, kills them.

A boy who loathes studying fails his exam, and his parents say luck is not on his side.

A business collapses. Employees fault the manager for squandering money. The manager, on the other hand, denounces employees for laziness. 

Everybody accuses another of their failure. This is so convenient.

So who takes the blame?

Because of shame and guilt, we shy away from taking responsibility for our actions. We’re all quick to pin the blame on others.

It takes the brave, the strong, the courageous person to honestly admit their flaws.
