Individuals come up with all kinds of excuses for their inappropriate behavior. “I have to keep moving from job to job because my work-place is filled with idiots.” “I am this way because my mother was this way.” “I act like this because when I was growing up I was neglected, rejected, abused-you fill in the blank.” A person will not change until the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of change.
While it is good to consider the source of our woundedness, we have to come to the end of using it as an excuse for our behavior. We need to take ownership of our brokenness if we are going to heal and move on with our lives. It’s time to stop the blame game. It’s time, to be honest with yourself and examine “Why do I do the things I do” “What’s wrong with me”
If that is where you are today there is hope, but you must take the first step and break the chains that bind you.
