Excuses are never in lack of usage. I guess this is why it is so cheap and so easy to dish out when we don’t want to take responsibility for our acts.
However, one must learn to accept responsibility and not dwell on what didn’t go as planned. Dwelling on things that went wrong should only be engaged in when one is looking for ways to correct their acts. But, in that regard, it will be more of introspection as opposed to dwelling negatively on excuses.
Instead of seeking to give excuses, seek to find out why what you want to give excuse for didn’t work out the way you thought it would. Most of the times, it has a lot to do with us than our circumstances.
If you are the type that loves finding ‘credible’ excuses to make up for a failed relationship, business venture or school exam for instance, you will find excuses in abundance. The reason is not farfetched however. We see what we want to see, and neglect what we think might question our own reasoning and cognitive process.
Excuses only lead to unending complaints that will affect your psyche in negative ways sooner than later. Just so you know too, people don’t fancy persons who give excuses all the time.
Sure, there may be times when there is legit excuse as to why something didn’t work out and that it probably is not your fault things didn’t work out the way you thought it would. But, we can look at the inventor of electricity for inspirations.
Instead of giving excuses, try making it work. Excuses are cheap.
