There’s a lot of bitching going on. People are bitching about money, jobs, relationships, the weather, government, politics, inflation, gas prices, sports, school and just about every other damn thing you can think of.
What I’m not hearing is anyone stepping up and taking responsibility for any of it. Hey, it’s gotta be someone’s fault, right? So whose fault is it?
It’s your fault, Bro!!!!! It’s all your fault!!!! Everything is your fault!!!!
At least….you better hope it is. If it was someone else’s fault you would have no control. You would have to sit around and wait for that other person to change your life. Ain’t gonna happen!!!!!
But, because it is your fault, you have total control over the situation. Don’t like where you live? Move. Hate your job? Quit. Overweight? Diet and exercise. Not real bright? Get educated. Can’t get a date? Become someone who has something to offer. Gas prices got you down? Ride a bike, take public transportation or walk.
Does this sound too simple? It is simple. But, the first step is accepting the fact that your thoughts, decisions and actions caused your lot in life. So, now you need to create different thoughts, better decisions and appropriate actions to move your life in a different direction.
There is an old saying “Don’t crap in your own nest cuz it stinks.” Every time you bitch about your life, you are crapping in your own nest. Bitching is the opposite of accepting responsibility. Bitching is blaming…..and blaming is powerless.
Repeat these words to yourself when you feel the need to bitch. “This is my fault. What can I do to make it better?”
It’s your fault, Bro. But that is a good thing.
