I think there is a pretty fair part of the folks in this country who think their life sucks. They haven’t had a raise in umpteen years. They have to have someone to blame and that person is often those they see as getting the “breaks” in life.
It’s pretty hard for them to admit that for the most part “my life sucks because of me”. That reality just doesn’t sink for most of us. They say they are stuck in an area with no good paying jobs but they never consider moving to a more prosperous area. They say the only good jobs are those requiring an education but never consider the need to learn anything beyond what they presently know. It’s just too easy to blame others for their problems. The morbidly obese guy says “poor me” and then consumes 6,000 calories per day and just doesn’t seem to see the connection.
Those of us who have had some success in life have for the most part worked to get it. It wasn’t handed to us on a gold platter like it was for #CO3 and others like him. For us, the adversities in our life have reinforced our character. We did something to change our circumstances instead of just moaning about them.
I want to close this post with an anonymous quote:
Quit blaming others for your circumstances in life. It is often just that simple.
#CO3 = Current Oval Office Occupant
