Owning the Mess

I find it rather amusing but it actually happened.
blaming others

The reason the world is in such a big mess is because no one wants to own personal mess. Each person likes to blame someone else. No one says, “Me. I did it.” I’m responsible. I chose this. I’m partly to blame. And I’m sorry.”…Friend, are you in mess? Stop the blame. Own your mess. ~Bo Sanchez 

Yes, there are times when something is legitimately not our fault. Blaming others, however, keeps us in a stuck state and is ultimately rough on our own self-esteem. ~Eric Allenbaugh 

Take charge of your attitude. Don't let someone else choose it for you. ~unknown 

We can let circumstances rule us, or we can take charge and rule our lives from within. ~Earl Nightingale 

We immediately become more effective when we decide to change ourselves rather than asking things to change for us. ~Stephen Covey

its wierd but i feel good and proud of myself every time i tell the truth about something i did even if its wrong! its always about honesty for me.

Kai Grafia said...

This is really true. I sometimes find myself doing this. Maybe it's just a person's defense mechanism, that natural urge. :>

That would be the best attitude. Stop the blame. Own the mess. And be responsible!

Franc Ramon said...

That's the problem. Most people would like all the fame but they don't want to be held accountable. If things go well, they want the glory and if not, they pass the blame. I admire people more who'd own up to their wrongdoings and make an effort to rectify it.

Whoa! Bless this post!

We do our own mess but it should be covered up by learning to accept and move on. Others blame others and so on... Blaming couldn't really help but would worsen the situation instead.

So true! We have to be responsible for the choices we make. If we don't like the results, then we can simply change our ways. :)

We are responsible for whatever that happens to us. No one's to be blamed. :)

John and Joyie said...

True in its ultimate sense. Why blame others? Acceptance kahit nakakahiya minsan-is a sign of maturity.

Gigi Beleno said...

Agree! I hate people who can't be responsible for their action and always opted to blame others.

People forget they have a lot of things which they can control. The victim syndrome is a huge hindrance to success.

Good post :)

LOL at the picture! Woman doesn't blame herself for eating O_O

We immediately become more effective when we decide to change ourselves rather than asking things to change for us. ~Stephen Covey -->> this i really have to agree with because we can change ourselves, but what is beyond our control, we cannot change. :)

cheers

the easiest way out is to point fingers and put the blame on others.. but ourselves.. sad..

Mary said...

it would be better to always do the right thing...

Mary said...

it would be better always
do the right thing...

Ric / Life N Canvas said...

Yes, thanks Mary!

I'm fat because I'm too lazy to exercise. Sigh.

Janette Toral said...

True indeed. Taking responsibility and accountability is important rather than focusing on someone else.

Karen said...

Thanks for sharing, it's something to reflect about.

Mai Flores said...

You hit the nail right on its head! It is quite true. One should be able to take on their own mistakes and own up to them. That to me, is a right judge of character.

claire said...

It's easy to see the mistakes of others, yet somehow you can't see your own.

merlmd said...

accountability...sadly so many people lack that.

Hazel said...

The sooner people learn responsibility for their actions, the better for themselves and everyone, the better for the world. Being 'just human' is no excuse. We are supposed to keep working on improving ourselves.

marri said...

Don't put the blame to other people when you are faltered... You are responsible for your own doings. If you have done wrong... face the consequences of your actions.

Earlie said...

That's a typical human being...it is a rare specie to have the courage to admit mistakes. it is the dictate of the condemning society, because when people become honest and brave..they are usually judged and talked about, so the tendency is to appear upright and blameless..
