The hardest thing to face is yourself

Life is full of obstacles and difficulties. This is a fact of life that we all accept as part of growing up. But there is nothing in life we will face that can have as a destructive, demoralizing and negative influence on our lives than ourselves. We are the toughest critic, the sternest of judges and the one person who can decide in life whether we accept or ignore the negative forces around us.

The easiest trick in the book is to blame someone else for the tough times we face or when things go wrong. But at the end of the day, we are the biggest obstacle we need to overcome, and if we could just understand that if we overcome this hurdle, face the demons inside of us all we would realize that the only thing stopping us reaching our dreams; is us.

I have looked long and hard onto the mirror on many occasions and asked myself who is really to blame for the failings in my life or for the things that went wrong. It is not easy to admit, that it was mostly, me. But to move forward, to learn from all the mistakes you have to accept responsibility for what went wrong. It will be the hardest thing you ever do, but when you do, you will see a clearer path ahead of you where the possibilities are endless and any obstacles seems passable.

    (¸.•´ (¸.• ♫ ♪ You are absolutely correct! It seems that when things go wrong, many of us tend to look for somebody to blame…. known as the ‘Blame Game.’ Seriously, blame is as old as the human race. But it did not help Adam and Eve. Why should we think that it would help you or me? No matter how we got here, our circumstances are what they are, and that is what we need to focus upon. Assigning blame changes neither our circumstances nor our objectives.
    Wonderfully written.


    1. Thank you Seth, that’s very kind of you. Love the way you put the blame game! Very true, one of the hardest things to do is to accept that it was a mistake that I made myself. But we keep trying!

      Take care Alan.
