When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

Growing up, most of us learnt to win attention/love/gifts by whining or crying to our guardians. Any small cry sent mum on a race to provide attention. Crying out loud got us back the toys our mates may have grabbed from us.  When hungry, a whine regardless of the moment was a VIP ticket to biscuits, ice cream or snack. In short, we shifted our responsibility for whatever happened to us or for whatever we felt, onto our guardians/parents. We found someone to lament or pass the blame to.

Unfortunately, most people have carried this habit even to adulthood. To feel comfort, they still whine & blame everyone else but them. The fault is placed on circumstances and on others in almost all areas of life; work, finances, value, purpose, physical fitness, salaries, relationships, giving etc.

The truth, however, is that regardless of the “Why” things are the way they are, you are already in the mess and it won’t change, unless you decide to clean it up and start anew. Unless & until this child-like habit of refuting or placing your responsibility on others is put away, your dreams and success will prove hard.

Life is full of problems; will you continue blaming others for all of them?

Stop blaming your parents, your circumstances, level of education, the rich, or everyone else, accept your personal responsibility and take action to make things change for the better because God never performs great feats in your past.

As it goes; RESPONSIBILITY is the ABILITY to RESPOND. Be able to respond!
