This article empowers all of us to take charge of our own lives.


Blaming Your Troubles on the System or Others is Disempowering. Don’t Do It!


We all do it sometimes. Every one of us tends to look for the easy way out. We blame our troubles on others. Don’t say you don’t do it because I know that you do! We all do!

My Granddaddy once told me that anyone could do well when things are going well, but not everyone can do well when things are not going well. It is a true test of your character and whom you are to do well when things are going bad and your world is crumpling around you!

By not taking the easy road of blaming and not giving yourself an easy way out to your problems, challenges, and deficiencies, you’re actually empowering yourself! When you face the pain and take it full force, head-on, it sure does hurt a little bit. Heck, sometimes it even hurts a lot! But, remember, what that does not kill us makes us stronger. The biggest trees have endured the strongest winds. A calloused hand is a strong hand. The strongest steel endured the hottest fire. You get the picture I’m painting here!

Face your fears. Face your inadequacies. Do something about them! Look in the mirror and realize that life won’t get better until you get better!

You can moan and groan about it. You can complain and cry about it. But nobody cares! And nobody is coming to save you. I’m sorry. I don’t mean to sound cold, but the bottom line is that everyone out there is just so busy trying to survive, and hopefully getting ahead a little bit, that they just don’t have time to notice your problems. It’s nothing personal. These are not bad people. They’re just really busy people worried about their own lives.

Thus, once you accept this truth, your life becomes a do-it-yourself project! Your life and the quality of your life is in your hands, and your hands alone. This is great news because you can chose to live any type of life you like. You can soar as high or dive as low as you want.

It’s your life. Do something with it.

“Do what?” you ask.

Something. Our great former president, FDR once said, “Above all, do something.”

Do something and do what you want. Just be prepared to live with the positive and negative consequences of each choice you make without blaming it on others or the system. Now I know we all have to live within the system, and that does affect us. I also know that we have to live among others, and that affects us too. I get this. I understand this. However, if you chose to use this as an excuse to do what most others do, as in blaming others or the system, then you’ll get what most others get! And I think you want more than that and deserve more than that, don’t you?

So teens, the answer is that you do deserve more than that! The world is your prize. Empower yourself by taking charge of your life. Remember, it’s a do-it-yourself project where you can climb as high as you’d like, or fall as low as you want. Don’t blame your troubles on the system or others. It is disempowering. Just, don’t do it! Instead, do go learn, lead, and lay the way to a better world for all of us. Thanks again in advance!
